Auletta is an Indie-Rock band from Mainz, Germany. The band named itself after the town Auletta in Italy, where they went on holiday in 2006.[1][2]


The band was founded in 2005.[3] In 2007 the band got their break by performing at the Emergenza European festival[4] and later that same year they won the 'Rockbuster' competition.[5] The following year, they appeared with Art Brut and Kilians.[6] 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 EA Sports video game, FIFA 10. 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]
