Mango was a popular Lithuanian girl trio. Created in 1998, it immediately had hits with the covers Pavasariniai žiedai (Spring Blossoms) and Svetimi (Strangers). During its ten-year career Mango released 12 albums that collectively sold some 310,000 copies.[1] It was recognized as the Band of the Year by Radiocentras Awards (2000 and 2001) and by Bravo Awards (2000).[2]

The group was created and produced by brothers Mindaugas and Gintaras Bendžius. Members of the group Rima Petrauskytė, Viktorija (Vika) Perminaitė and Asta Bridikytė were selected after a special competition, organised by Bendžius brothers and composer Žilvinas Liulys.[1] In 2004, Bridikytė left the group and was replaced by Lina Kaklytė.[3] The band announced its retirement in 2007 with a release of the third compilation of its best songs and a good-bye tour across Lithuania, including special appearances for Lithuanian communities in England, Ireland, and United States, with the final concert on March 31, 2008 in Šiauliai Arena.[2]
