Video Title:
How Lula Wiles Got Their Name [Interview Video]
Description:
None of them are named Lula. Multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Isa Burke, Eleanor Buckland, and Mali Obomsawin share the origin of their enigmatic band name in this interview video. Their album, 'What Will We Do', is out January 25th, 2019 on Smithsonian Folkways. 'What Will We Do' available on CD, Vinyl LP, and Digital. Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/lula-wiles/what-will-we-do Bandcamp: https://lulawiles.bandcamp.com/album/what-will-we-do On 'What Will We Do,' Lula Wiles channel infectious energy and bold insight into music that strikes with purpose. The band fosters contradiction, embracing the spirit of traditional American music, yet unflinchingly calling into question the virtues of the culture that produces it— country songs that shine a light on a country’s crimes; love songs about being alone; murder ballads that challenge the standards of morality. Lula Wiles exist in the tense space where tradition and revolution meet, from which their harmonies rise into the air to create new American music.
