Music in Tirol: From Rock to Reggae

Last updated 26.03.2020KlausKlaus

From hard riffs to bubblegum pop, Carribbean calipso to Alpine afro – Tirol is home to a surprisingly diverse music scene that has much more to offer than just brass bands and yodelling.

A number of singers and bands from Tirol have had international success. Manu Delago’s hit “Mono Desire” has had millions of views on YouTube and is one of the platform’s highest rated music videos, while local DJs Wax Wreckaz created the soundtrack for the popular computer game NBA Live.

Other Tirolean artists have gained legendary status within the region. Rap collective Von Seiten der Gemeinde are famous for using local Tirolean dialect instead of Standard German in their recordings, though their catchy beats and hooks are universal and transgress language borders.
