Ticket to Tel Aviv: Meet Tulia from Poland27 April 2019 at 18:00 CEST
Polish broadcaster TVP announced on 15 February that Tulia would be their representative at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, the group was chosen through an internal selection.
Who is Tulia?
Tulia is made up of four singers, Patrycja Nowicka, Dominika Siepka, Joanna Sinkiewicz and Tulia Biczak, who combine classic folk music with modern music production. Everything began for the band in October of 2017, when Depeche Mode published an interesting folk version of one of their hit, Enjoy the Silence on their official fan page. Tulia was formed out of encouragement from fans of the unique style of the cover.
Within a year of their creation in early 2018, Tulia achieved more than many established artists could wish for. The group performed at the FRYDERYKI 2018 gala (the Polish equivalent of the Grammy or BRIT Awards) with Natalia Nykiel and Pianohooligan – it was one of the evening’s most praised performances. The singers won all three awards during the oldest and most important Polish Song Festival in Opole, appeared on numerous summer festivals and played a first sold out tour. Tulia received a platinum award for their debut album released late in May 2018.
