"We drank together and we all sang mountain songs."

Yodeling, or 'juchzn' in Austrian, was a form of song originally developed in the Alps as a way of communicating from one mountain to another. However, it soon became part of the region's traditional folk culture. Schrammelmusik, which incorporates the accordion and the double-necked guitar, is another form of Austrian folk music that became popular in the late nineteenth century, and still endures today.
