Hilarious!!! The Romanian girls get down.....

...with Boney M!!!!

  Yep, that's right, Boney M!  They live on!  

In an article titled "Ra-ra-Rasputin" by prosport we are told about the girls from Deva taking a friday night off to go see Boney M play.  According to the article, the girls planned on slipping into the 5000 strong crowd unnoticed to watch the show with Nicolae Forminte.  They were, however, recognised by the band and taken on stage, where they danced and sang to some songs.  Sandra Izbasa apparently got right into it, singing along to a couple of songs on the mike!

Ceresela Patrascu said she was very, very surprised to discover the band members were big fans of Romanian gymnastics (I was too) and that they had youtube clips of them competing on their phones.  It was, they told Cera, as exciting for them as it was for the girls to meet and hang out on stage.
Okay, so I am totally rapt to hear that the girls get taken out to concerts on their weekends (even if it is Boney M and so deliciously, daggily Eastern European!) considering they live in a small town and rarely get to go home, but what I really want to know is, if they wanted to watch the show unnoticed, why on God's green earth did they where their national team tracksuits!?  Now come on people- that is not exactly covert!
For those of you too young, or just sheltered enough to have never experienced Boney M, here is a youtube vid of their "greatest" hit, Rasputin.  It's pretty freaking funny. Now, try to imagine Sandra singing it.


  1. I had never heard of Boney M before but after watching that video I would pay good money to see the Romanian team singing along and Forminte!

  2. I found this little gem on Youtube. You can see the Romanians on stage dancing along!

  3. Oh, the first thing I thought of was "If they were trying to blend in, why were they wearing those tracksuits?" I mean, seeing a bunch of short girls (except for Sandra) all wearing matching, extra bright tracksuits, you have to put two and two together.

    But they all (gymnasts and band!) had a wonderful time, and that's all that matters.

  4. The sound is really awful, but there's a video of this here:
