    Following her victory with Pan in 1989, Ece went forward to the 34th Eurovision Song Contest, held in Lausanne, Switzerland on 6 May. "Bana Bana" was a very ethnic-sounding song but it came many years before such songs became vote winners at Eurovision, and finished in 21st place of the 22 entries, beating only the 'nul points' Icelandic entry.
