Banaroo biography

Banaroo is a Bubblegum Dance group from Germany, created in 2005 by Super RTL. They are best known for their hit singles Dubi Dam Dam, Space Cowboy, Coming Home For Christmas, and Uh Mamma.

Banaroo was created in 2005 through a casting call by Super RTL in Germany. After many rounds of tryouts, they finally found the four members who would form Banaroo. Robbert "Bobby" Dessauvagie, Stefanie "Steffy" Dreyer, Kathrin "Cat" Geißler, and Vittorio "Vito" Magro. The group was signed to the label Na Klar! and was also given their own reality show in Germany on the TV series Das Star-Tagebuch. Banaroo released their debut single Dubi Dam Dam on June 5th, 2005. The single achieved huge success. In July 2005, Banaroo released their debut album, titled Banaroo's World, which charted at #1 in both Germany and Austria and at #7 in Switzerland. It was certified platinum in Germany, and certified Gold in both Austria and Switzerland. In December 2005, Banaroo released their second album, titled Christmas World, which included a mix of Christmas songs as well as some regular songs.

In February 2006, Banaroo returned with a new single called Uh Mamma. It charted in the top 10 in Germany and Austria and peaked at #11 in Switzerland. Their third album, Amazing, was released on March 24th, 2006. It charted at #2 in Austria, #6 in Germany, and #25 in Switzerland. The second single released from Amazing was Sing And Move (La La La Laaaa). It failed to reach the success of their past singles, only reaching a peak of #51.

In March 23rd, 2007, Banaroo returned with a new single titled Ba Yonga Wamba, which was also unable to match their previous success, though charting higher than Sing And Move (La La La Laaaa), charting at the top 30 in Germany and Austria. They released their seventh single I'll Fly Away on May 4th, 2007. It only charted at #84 in Germany. They released their fourth album on July 4th, 2007. Despite failing to do as well as their past albums, it still charted at #24 in Germany. On October 19th, 2007, Banaroo released a greatest hits album titled The Best Of Banaroo, including two new songs, which were a cover of Crying At The Discotheque by Alcazar and Waterloo by ABBA as exclusive tracks for this album. The album failed to chart.

Sadly, in May 2008, Vito confirmed that Banaroo had disbanded and the members were moving on to solo projects.

As of 2012, Vito is part of a duo called Destivo, Steffy is persuing a career in stage acting, and Kathrin Geißler is now a solo singer.

In February 2013, after over four years of silence from Banaroo, Na Klar! announced that Banaroo would be making a comeback in 2013, but with all new members. After several rounds of casting for new members, four new members were selected : Doro Farkas, Laura Luppino, Alvin Philipps, and Daniel Langer. The new line-up was announced in March 2013. They also have a Facebook fanpage now and their official website is back online, having been taken offline around 2009. So far, it has been confirmed that Banaroo will tour Germany and Austria in the Toggo Tour 2013 from May until September 2013. They have also announced that Banaroo's new single will be released on May 17th, 2013, a remake of Banaroo's past hit Dubi Dam Dam. Banaroo will also release a fifth album titled Bubblegum World sometime during 2013, expected for a summer release, which will include new versions of their past hits as well as several brand new songs. A release date for the new album will be announced soon.

On November 6th, Laura Luppino confirmed that Banaroo was splitting up again. Laura explained said this was due to disagreements between the members about the group's future

2014 : Laura Luppino released her first solo album. She toured with musical 3 Musketiere, das Musical. She competed with her song The Energy of Love for Swiss ESC preselections but was not selected.

2015 : in June, Laura was featured on Oliver DeVille's single Indian Skies
