What next for this year’s Eurovision entrants?
Poland has had a chequered Eurovision history since it joined in 1994 with only three top ten placings and eleven years where it either didn’t qualify or did not participate, 2018 included. This year the country put forward four-piece folk music group Tulia who formed in 2017 and released a number of singles and an album in 2017 which has been certified Platinum in their home country. The group were selected and given the song “Pali się” (“Fire Of Love”), co-written by Sonia Krasny, Allan Rich and Jud Friedmann, but unfortunately failed to qualify for a second year running, finishing the first semi final in eleventh place.
Tulia are Joanna Sinkiewicz, Dominika Siepka, Patrycja Nowicka and Tulia Biczak, and made quite a splash with their debut in 2017, a cover of Depeche Mode’s 1990 classic “Enjoy The Silence”. They followed this with a number of singles and their self-titled debut album the following year which made No.7 in their home country. The band have a number of concerts and appearances lined up for this Summer across Poland and are more in demand than ever before. With over 45,000 supporters on their official Facebook page and their album now flying back up the chart, you haven’t heard the last of Tulia!
