    Many people think of yodeling as rollicking, fast, almost clownish solo vocalization accompanied by an accordion. But in Switzerland, what you are most likely to hear is “natural yodel” or yodel song, hauntingly beautiful a cappella singing with 2, 3, or 4-part harmony. Yodeling, a vocal technique that involves a variety of drawn-out pitches formed in the head and chest registers, was the perfect way to bring cows together in what sheepherders called kuhreihen, or "line of cows". The earliest record of the distinctive call was written in in Appenzell, a region in northeastern Switzerland.

Shepherds began using the distinctive calls to round up cattle. I bought this CD for my two kids, ages 2 and 4, to expose them to yodelling. This is a great CD for kids, both love it. Heidi is a great yodeller, but her singing doesn't hold up to someone like Julie Andrews, so there are places in songs, and a couple of songs where she sings more than yodels and that is /5(4).

    Yodel in Hi-Fi explores the vibrant and varied traditions of yodelers around the world. Far from being a quaint and dying art, yodel is a thriving vocal technique that has been perennially renewed by singers from Switzerland to Korea, from Colorado to Iran. Bart Plantenga offers a lively and surprising.   And in the meantime, there’s book number three to finish, all about American life after Switzerland—in other words—American Life: 30 Things I Wish I’d Known. And boy are there a lot of things The Frau wishes she had known about her own country. Way more t but now the fun part begins of choosing exactly which 30 to highlight.
