cd cover Alpcologne
Alpha (West Park)

Probably a totally new concept to you, as it was to me: 3 alphorns and vocals.

Listen:
An Eye For An Eye
Heideldi
Mikado
Monte Christo

   

More info:
The concept of the band arises from its unusual instrumentation. The warm, rich sound of the 4-meter-long traditional instruments encounters the expressiveness and melodic flexibility of the voice. The musical restrictions of the alphorns, which are limited to the production of "natural notes," prove to be a fascinating challenge. Like the explorers of past centuries, Alpcologne can experiment with its own sound - playing Folk, Ska, Tango, Mambo, Cajun, Bluegrass, and Oriental music, for example. Whether original compositions or reinterpretations, vocals and alphorns meld to an exciting musical entity. Instead of postcard romanticism, lively world music is created. Always surprising, and with the right touch of humor, Alpcologne takes its audience on a journey through familiar and unknown territory. And the possibilities have not yet been exhausted.

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
