Who said the Swiss did not evolve?

Certainly musically, they can. My dear friend Barbara Klossner who, for those who don't know, is one of the big names in Swiss Yodel, has fusioned African music with Swiss yodel and here's the result (brilliant!)

I regularly listen to Swiss music.

Triumph of Death demo from Hellhammer is among my favourite pieces of all-time recordings

Re: Who said the Swiss did not evolve?

I was thinking more in terms of fusion of styles. In Scotland, for example, we have this great Scottish-Cuban band called Salsa Celtica, love them!

And I challenge you not to dance to this one!

Re: Who said the Swiss did not evolve?

Actually love those weird traditional/modern fusions. Like Mongolian throat singing and instruments à la 'heavy rock' stuff

https://youtu.be/v4xZUr0BEfE

and the humour 'The Hu'

Re: Who said the Swiss did not evolve?

It's all part of a Swiss-French TV collection of "Swiss-Covers". This one is an Alpine Horn trio version of Queen "We will Rock You"! https://www.rts.ch/play/radio/swiss-covers/video/swiss-covers-1-queen?id=11087365


It's like Marmite, you love it or you hate it!

What, not even while seating on and scrutinising your local bar and restaurant toilets? What you're missing out on! Sorry about the "groan", it was an accident (but probably well overdue, anyway! )

One could better say the Swiss did not evolve. They were born that way!
