♥ Saâda Bonaire ♥

DJ Ralph ”von” Richtoven created the pop-art project Saâda Bonaire in 1982, formed of vocalists Stephanie Langefriend and Claudia Hossfeld; accompanied by traditional Kurdish folk musicians. Recording their first debut single ‘You Could Be More As You Are’ in Kraftwerk’s Cologne studio, Saâda Bonaire was a Disco-funk fusion of western electronic sounds and a more traditional, oriental sound of the east, releasing solely twelve-inch singles. Having been originally signed to EMI, their album was reissued by Captured Tracks/Fantasy Memory in 2013.
