He was born in October 2, Naidoo also has a successful solo career. Born and raised in Mannheim to South African parents of Indian, German and Irish descent, Naidoo worked in several jobs in the food and music industries before relocating to the United States in the early s, where he released his first full-length English-language album Seeing Is Believing under his stage name Kobra in He currently resides in his native Germany.

He joined groups like Brothers Keepers and the charity project Signs of the Times in the early The two had already worked together on a number of other releases.
His parents are Eugene Naidoo and Rausammy Naidoo. You have been active in the music scene since Xavier Naidoo: I think it was primarily the German language Xavier Naidoo - Abschied Nehmen made us unique. It was not only giving Germany soul music. It was giving the Germans a piece of soul back. People felt awkward when they traveled abroad, not wanting to say they were German, so how on earth would you expect to find decent German music?
There was a lot of English and American music around, but I wanted to give Germans lyrics they could understand, so they could learn to handle pop music. Xavier Naidoo: The great thing about pop is to be able to read between the lines and identify with the song. We were missing out on that. I grew up speaking English and German, so I had the privilege of being able to read between the lines. And all the drum and bass stuff.
I felt so at home in that scene. I wanted to give people that joy of understanding and identifying with what I was singing. So we started to do it ourselves. I mean look at people like David Hasselhoff. He was never as popular in his own country as he was in Germany. When he did his recent album and tour here, everybody was back supporting him like in the old days. There are about a hundred million German speaking people in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, so the market is Rondel (Ryan Davis Pandora Reshape) - Bob Barker - Broken Labour EP. If you can reach out to them with a love song or whatever, then that is great.
Xavier Naidoo - Abschied Nehmen you look at places like the UK, everybody seems to either have a band or manage one. Xavier Naidoo: We never grew up with an entertainment sector. Only now are more and more German bands appearing on the scene, and more of them sing German. But look at Sweden, they do a good job of exporting their music to the world. Xavier Naidoo: But then our radio situation is far less open and international than it is in Scandinavia for example. They play jazz next to speed metal and then you could hear an indie song followed by a pop song.
Here in Germany our stations are split into different categories. Other countries have American series with subtitles so they learn to play with different languages far quicker. We are kind of in a bubble where we used to duck and hide feeling ashamed of our German identity. All we have is Schlager, which is a parody of German folk music with no substance, just rubbish.
We used to have beautiful folk songs with wonderful arrangements and brilliant lyrics. There is this ever-growing ongoing discussion on music on the internet and illegal downloads. Xavier Naidoo: I think we have to start living with the Internet. The question is where it will lead. The main problem is that some people have closed their eyes for far too long, especially within the music industry. At the end of the day I need to have my music online. There is so much out now, and nobody has enough money to buy everything, but lots of people show up at Xavier Naidoo - Abschied Nehmen concerts at least, so no harm done!
Xavier Naidoo: What we really need are places where young bands can play and organize gigs. In Mannheim we already have a pop academy where you can study popular culture and music. We have a music park. The music industry seems to Xavier Naidoo - Abschied Nehmen be recognizing the need, but more investment in popular music and culture is definitely Xavier Naidoo - Abschied Nehmen . We also need music TV shows again.
Gonna Rock Tonite - Flamin Groovies* - Yesterdays Numbers we have are Xavier Naidoo - Abschied Nehmen silly casting shows, but no decent live venues for AG (D.I.T.C.)* / Sekz - Street / Far Rock bands.
That just kills any development in the German music scene. But then again I like to watch these casting shows because they are the only way to find out who has talent in Germany. For the first time, the host sings time in the Styrian dialect and puts a lot of emotion in the very personal song. Xavier Naidoo - Abschied Nehmen givers Andreas Gabalier and Sarah Connor finally let their tears run wild.
