The Theater Casino Zug’s new «Heimatklänge» (regional sounds) series is a crazy amalgamation of folk music, Balkan brass, feminist agit prop yodelling, Alpine brass music and oriental sounds. Highly-talented musicians with a real sense of perspective have dusted off the sounds of their respective homelands and given them new musical horizons. They all share the belief that your own roots are always the best foundation to build on, making these concerts a real pleasure for one and all, and not merely reserved for fans of new Swiss folk music.
