What a great find! Thanks for sharing!x_X
The past few years in Germany have seen a growing (albeit odd) trend toward native-language rap. It's one thing to hear a German rap song, and another whole experience to hear full-on Swiss dialect rap! Something so contextual so out of context...
Thank you, this has made my week!
For your understanding, this is not swiss-german dialect, but the much more exotical romansh (spell also rumantsch) which is di per se an own language and not a dialect. The roots of this language lie in the vulgar latin.
If, like myself, you don't go for hippity hoppery, dub your own Vals-made soundtrack:Artist: HAUSER AND MICHAEL ASKILL, FRITZTitle: Space: Music For Bells, Cymbals and GongLabel: CELESTIAL HARMONIESFormat: CD"Recorded at Therme Vals, in Switzerland, over the course of two predawn mornings in June, 2005, there was a kind of sound alchemy that took place as Fritz Hauser and Michael Askill played the simple bells normally worn by cows, sheep and goats in the beautifully reverberant space of the thermal spas. Write the performers: 'The music on this CD has been created through improvisation. Based on the instrumental material -- about 40 cow, sheep and goatbells, various cymbals and a small gong from China -- we developed playing concepts, and in dialogue with the room and the unusual sound environment we recorded the takes. In the studio some of the pieces have been used for multi-track arrangements, but most of them have been left untouched. We have put them in an order that now carries the title Space: Music for Bells, Cymbals and Gong.'"
