WM-2022: Switzerland

Alphorn, yodeling and what else? All sorts ....

Alphorn, yodeling and songs that sound as if one farmer boy is shouting something to another across the valley. All this exists in Switzerland and it may be that one or the other perceives Switzerland in this way. But Switzerland has well-known Swiss artists such as DJ Bobo, Stefanie Heizmann, Luca Hänni, Gölä, Bligg, Baschi, Sophie Hunger, Faber, Beatrice Egli and Andreas Vollenweider. But what kind of musicians do children in elementary school get to know in class? There is Mani Matter, a Swiss bard who wrote folk songs of simple content and tragically died in a car accident in 1972 at the age of 36. His songs are still very well known today. Mani Matter wrote, among other things, a song called "Sidi Abdel Assar vo El Hama", which perhaps fits quite well with this World Cup.

Sophie Hunger, Faber and Dino Brandao have recorded a record together in dialect, from which I present the song "E Nacht a de Langstrass". Langstrasse is perhaps the milieu street in Zurich.

Since yodeling may not be missing then still from Bligg "Musigg i dä Schwiiz". Mani Matter also appears again. He was posthumously awarded prizes and a special coin was minted for him. The famous Swiss folk musician.

Stefanie Heinzmann has recorded a dance pop number "Build a House" together with "Alle Farben". She was discovered at a casting show by Stefan Raab which had the beautiful name SSDSDSSWEMUGABRTLAD. But you can assume that her voice would have become successful somehow otherwise.
