Lali Puna are from Munich, Germany. The band was brought to life by Valerie Trebeljahr (who sings and plays keyboards), because it was her (plus a four-track-recorder) building Lali Puna’s core in early 1998. Having a lot of time on her hands after her all-girl-band LB Page had split up, she used the four-track as a kind of band replacement. Then came Markus Acher, relaxing from his Notwist and Tied & Tickled Trio duties and thus he became Lali Puna’s second member. After some time it became clear that this music should also be played on stage. And so drummer Christoph Brandner (Console) and keyboarder Florian Zimmer (ISO 68) completed the band’s second incarnation.
