Bananarama is a British Pop/Hi-NRG/Dance trio of singer-songwriters - Sarah Dallin, Siobhan Fahey and Keren Woodward - that formed in London, United Kingdom in 1981. Early successful singles were collaborations with Fun Boy Three. They built their success on albums released during the 80's, with their most successful being the Wow! album. Guinness Book of World Records listed Bananarama as the most successful British girl group in history. They still hold the record for the most chart entries in the UK by a girl group.
During the recording of their True Confessions album (1985) they chose to change their sound, seeking out producers Stock Aitken Waterman who helped them sustain their success during the mid-to-late 1980's.
Fahey left the group in 1988 and later formed Shakespear's Sister. Fahey was replaced by Jacquie O'Sullivan (formerly of the Shillelagh Sisters) between ‘88 and ‘91, after which Dallin and Woodward continued to record and perform as a duo.
In 2017, it was announced that Fahey would be rejoining the group, for an “Original Line-Up Tour” of Europe and North America.
