The music of eight-piece Melbourne outfit Tulalah, transcends stylised boundaries. Affectionately labeled as “Orchestral Folk”, the group strives to create an ever expansive sound, reaching beyond the confines of their instrumentation. They seek to defy the ever emerging culture of small ensembles with extensive and powerful arrangements that captivate the listener.
Their debut 2xLP “The Flood”, released by Melbourne's own Equinox Recordings in October 2015, established the group’s collective influences of jazz, folk, rock and modern classical music, intricately weaving them into a symphonic sound-scape that captivated audiences across the globe.
Support from taste-makers such as Gilles Peterson, Kev Beadle, Jon Oliver, Toshio Matsuura, Paul Gough and Mike Gurrieri show the level of musical intrigue Tulalah has created with their bold and bashful sound.
After performances at a number of 2016/17 festivals, June of 2017 saw the independant release of their second LP, "The Question" which further explored large ensemble music in a contemporary setting, delicately balancing complex arrangements with gutteral writing and performance. Tulalah will be using the remainder of 2017 to improve their awe-inspiring live show and prepare to get back into the studio in early 2018.
