sächsilüüte_musikinselAlso “CheRoba & il Fiato delle Alpi” have the Saechsilüüte tune in their repertoire! But our version has the notes es-a-e-c-h-es in the theme! The “Sächsilüüte” is a traditional spring holiday in Zürich. Following the parade of the guilds, the climax of the holiday is the burning of winter in effigy, in the form of the “Böögg”, a figure of a snowman prepared with explosives. We own our own tiny “Böögg” and it has been accompanying us during the recording sessions at the Musikinsel Rheinau: 9 musicians, 2 sound engineers and 1 food planner – and we did not manage to get the Böög’s pyre lit!!!
