Since 2008, the band TulaTroubles (Munich) celebrates its genre “Chanson-Ska” – a contamination of ska, reggae and world-music going from rock to Balkan, from Latin to oriental melodies up to romantic French chansons.
The origin of the name “Tula Troubles” is in the fable “the Wolf and the Lamb” by Jean de la Fontaine. Against all evidences, the stronger Wolf accuses the weaker Lamb of dirtying its water (French: “Tu la troubles!”), and takes its life. This fable reminds of all sorts of fanatics, who identify their opinions as the absolute truth no matter how many arguments prove them wrong.
“Our music is an attempt to describe our temporary ideas and our current point of view on matters… Every idea is valuable, as long as it does not aim to become collective.“
