Stefan Raab- Mastermind behind Lena & Bundesvision
Long before Lena Meyer Landrut- there was another Huge Star in Germany- who has rose to fame in his homeland
& represented his home city Berlin. Its been a bit of a secret that Germany have their own Song Contest along the lines
of Eurovision & called Bundesvision. This domestic contest is organised by Herr Stefan Raab (above) the guy who sang 'Wadde hadde dudde da?'
for Germany in Eurovision 2000 (finished 5th) Bundesvision is not connected to Eurovision yet since back in 2005 when it began it has been very popular as each region of Germany compete to win the contest.
Last year a big Star was born from Berlin Peter Fox with his own brand of German R&B/rap style he won top prize in 2009 with
the hit 'Schwarz zu blau' so the musical culture here seems alot more alternative than Eurovis-Pop.
Check out more from Peter Fox and his best selling album called 'Stadtaffe' -we found it very different - almost
germany music in a NYC style.
As for Bundesvision stay tuned - as we will be following this years event in Berlin on 1st October 2010
