The band's name, Talila, is inspired from the state of joy and happiness that prevails in a Palestinian wedding; as the Talila are the old folk songs that use simple common colloquial words and endearing melody that create a state of joy and celebration. The band, formed from all over the Palestinian territories, was established in 2016 to revive folk Arabic songs chosen from Iraq, the Levant and the Gulf with a new vision and a youth perspective, in addition to new songs composed by the members of the band.
