Forbes: Stingray as “Hero of Global Commerce”

We are thrilled to share Stuart Anderson’s Forbes article on Joanna Stingray’s remarkable story of globalization and rock ‘n’ roll music.

Stuart Anderson writes, “While we often think of globalization as factories and container ships, the exchange of goods and ideas between nations starts with one person finding something people in another nation would value. Joanna Stingray was that one person who brought Soviet rock music to America and did so in remarkable fashion.

[…] To put Joanna Stingray’s story in perspective, imagine if a foreigner came to America before rock ‘n’ roll was invented or popular, became friends with Jim Morrison, Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Van Halen, and introduced their music to the world.”
