Joga Overview

Joga is an Italian Italy Europop act produced by Nick Ferrando with Nathalie Aarts featured on vocals. Aarts had released four singles commercially in Europe: Dam Dariram, Bye Bye Baby Balloon, No Nobody's Love, and White Christmas. Joga is claimed to be quite po***r among listeners of Toshiba-EMI's Dancemania non-stop megamix series, and among players of Bemani games. Of their three major songs, Dam Dariram and Bye Bye Baby Balloon are considered the most famous releases, with No Nobody's Love still po***r among fans, but not featured outside of Dancemania X7. White Christmas was added to the Trance X-Mas compilation (Polystar Records, 2003), and this song has to date been their last collaboration as producer and singer.
