This is one for the nerds!...

...like me! My good friend Ruedi Roth, who got an Oscar for his composition of start and finishing credits of the film "The Grand Budapest Hotel", has now composed a musical...on yodelling! You have to go with your yodelling hat on and good beer part of the fun...but you know the Swiss, they take it very seriously!
I'm going in my kilt, just to turn a few heads!

Starts with the Premiere in Wattwil, Ruedi's hometown, on 1st October!


It'd be fun to hear some English...I don't speak a word of Swiss German!

Yodelling can be quite fascinating, beer probably helps. Used to often ask my Swiss Dad (working in Acton) to yodel for me, and he did his best (even though without beer). One of my best memories was seeing how hard he tried to get the whole thing right (and it's complex).

Guess as it's not showing in ZH will book in SG.

Well, you need to keep your eyes "open" in January when it's Burns Night...there was one organised by the British Chamber of Commerce this year, I was there (in full kilt regalia, of course!). And, well, there'll be one kilt wearer in Wattwil this year, and it's not part of the yodel musical!

Re: This is one for the nerds!...

For those who understand German, here's an article on Ruedi's Oscar nomination:

And that was his composition:

I can yodel this one ok, after a couple of beers down, but it's a lot harder than it sounds.

I don't think it's for the nerds. It's good that people keep traditions alive, it's our heritage. Next weekend I am going to a Swiss rave, complete with 3 Alpine Horns.

I guess you won't be difficult to identify....

I would agree with you but that would make me a nerd. And everyone knows I'm the coolest cat here on EF.
