Auletta is an Indie-Rock band from Mainz, Germany. The band named itself after the town Auletta in Italy, where they went on holiday to in 2006.[2][3]

History[edit]

The band was founded in 2005.[4] In 2007 the band got their break by performing at the Emergenza European festival[5] and later that same year they won the 'Rockbuster' competition.[6] The following year, they appeared with Art Brut and Kilians.[1] At the end of 2008, Auletta signed a record deal with EMI.[7] On 26 June 2009, the band released their first album "Pöbelei & Poesie" (literally translated as Vulgarity and poetry). "Meine Stadt" (My Town), one of the songs on the album, was included in the FIFA 10 video game. On 1 October 2010, the band represented Rheinland-Pfalz at the Bundesvision Song Contest 2010 and finished 14th place out of 16 performing "Sommerdiebe" (Summer thieves).[8]
