Emilíana Torrini Tops the Charts in Europe

“Jungle Drum” by Icelandic singer-songwriter Emilíana Torrini, from her latest album Me and Armini, is currently the most popular song in Germany and Austria—for the second week in a row.

This is the first time that a song by an Icelandic musician makes it to the top of such significant singles charts lists, mbl.is reports.

“I just heard about this last week [the first week of July]; we haven’t even been to Germany yet,” Torrini, who is currently touring Europe, said when “Jungle Drum” first topped the German charts.

The song is believed to be so popular in Germany because it was recently played on the reality television show Germany’s Next Top Model.

Both Torrini and Icelandic singer-songwriter Lay Low played at the Glastonbury music festival this year.
