Frisz is a Pop group based in the Netherlands. Between 2004 and 2015 the group performed under the name Djumbo.

Lindsy is described as a helpful little girl, sometimes timid; one of her favourite activities is chatting on the phone. Lotte is said to be open-minded and honest, and she loves animals. Samantha loves dancing and singing.

This is (the old line-up from) Djumbo.

The three girls met in a dancing school in Eindhoven, where their dancing skills were discovered by a record producer who signed them up for their first single "Hide and Seek" under the Djumbo Project. Their first two singles entered top 5 in their homeland and they succeeded, in less than six months, to become one of the most popular pop groups there.[citation needed]

Their sound is quite similar to K3, who are based in Belgium. Both have the fun bouncy 'childish' style that makes it popular amongst children—happy pop music for children.

The lyrics of most Djumbo songs are written in a combination of English and Dutch, with the majority of a song being in Dutch and the chorus (and title) being in English.

New line-up[edit]

Svenja decides to leave Djumbo. She says: "After 7 beautiful years with Djumbo, I wanna grow further." She wishes Lindsy, Lotte and the new member good luck in the future. Saturday 15 January, 2011 will Lindsy and Lotte publish the new member of the group in a special show called 'Wie wordt het nieuwe lid van Djumbo' (translation: "Who becomes the new member of Djumbo"). The new member of Djumbo is Samantha Klumper. She is 24 years old and loves singing and dancing. She is very happy that her dreams come true by joining Djumbo. Lindsy and Lotte are very happy with her.

Side-projects[edit]

Djumbo are currently hosting the game show Kies je ster (Pick your star) for joint broadcast on TROS and Sterren.nl, a satellite-channel devoted to 50 years of mainstream Dutch music. Kies je ster is basically a pop- and showbiz-themed resurrection of TV classic Ren je rot (1973-1983), itself being the Dutch version of Runaround.
