From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Fallulah (born 6 February 1985[1][2][3][4][5]) is a Danish singer-songwriter and musician. Her given name is Maria Apetri. Following a short dancing career,[6] she entered the music industry and released her debut album in 2010 which peaked at number three in Denmark and went on to be certified platinum.[7][8]

Fallulah has been compared to Florence & The Machine, Adele, Marina and the Diamonds and Bat For Lashes.[9] She performed at the Start! festival and has been featured as "Soundvenue Selected" by the Danish music magazine of the same name.[10] She was national radio station DR P3's "unavoidable" at week 38 in 2009 with her single I Lay My Head.[11] On the 30 October 2009, she released the theme song for the Danish film Simon and Malou entitled "No Time for Love" written by Bryan Adams and Gretchen Peters under the name Maria Apetri.[12]

Her single Bridges was the most played track, from a home artist, on DR P3 in 2010,[13] and on 15 January 2011, Fallulah won the prestigious "P3 Guld" award. Early in 2011, Fallulah got another major hit with the song Out Of It, which was played as the intro for the so-called depression comedy "Lykke" on national Danish television. For several weeks the song was the number one download on Danish iTunes. It was number one on the Danish hit list[14] and on the radio list.

Her second album Escapism was released 4 February 2013 in Denmark.

Early life

Fallulah grew up in Tårnby on Amager island, the southern suburbs of Copenhagen. She attended Kalundborg Gymnasium. Her Danish mother, Lillian Apetri and her Romanian father Nicolae Apetri, were the initiators of the Balkanic folklore dance group Crihalma. Therefore Fallulah spent much of her childhood on dancing tours in the Balkans and in Eastern Europe. This activity ceased when she lost her father at the age of nine years. They then moved to Jyderup in the north west of Zealand, where Fallulah continued with her dancing. At age 21 she moved to New York to start at the Broadway Dance Center but then moved back to Denmark to focus on music.

Fallulah has since the summer of 2009 lived in Frederiksberg with her boyfriend, the singer Thomas Holm.
