Night Flight to Venus

Marcia Barrett flew to Bangalore to entertain a surging mass by night at the Palace ground on 8th March, 2008. Like many, I grew in the 80s listening to Boney M hits like 'By the rivers of Babylon', 'Brown girl in the ring', 'Night flight to Venus' and many others on a Panasonic tape recorder in our ancestral home. The tapes flew all the way from Africa...
It was music to the ears after so many years now to hear them sing again.

I was fortunate enough to sneak in to a press conference and get to meet the lead vocalist up close and get prize pictures. Marcia was gracious and chatted up with reporters who queued up for hours for her to arrive in the cafe after a lavish spread at lunch.
