Formed in Cologne in 2000, Basta was a German a cappella group. The brainchild of schoolmates William Wahl and Rene Overmann, Basta's lineup had some early hiccups, but eventually settled in 2004, just in time for the band's second album, B.
A constant touring schedule, and a flair for the mildly humorous won the group a fair amount of praise, and in 2006 Basta was able to contribute a track to that year's World Cup festivities (the single "Gast Bei Freunden"). The group released album number four, Wir Sind Wie Wir Sind, in 2007. ~ Chris True, Rovi
