Our Tradition, Our Home: Switzerland from Human Picture Initiative on Vimeo.

In a hidden valley in Switzerland indigenous Swiss have a long tradition of revering the mountains and using yodelling as a way of communication going way back.

This film explores traditional sites and sounds of Switzerland. From yodel choirs and alphorn players, to farmers and town folk, these vignettes highlight the personal joy brought about by living traditions that create a sense of home.

Come with us to the mountains and watch the beauty as you listen to these unique styles of yodelling that span a harmonious and discordant spectrum of vocalization.
