About Here…

Leading up to the old Sylvester celebrations in Appenzell, a young boy listens while his peers sing ancient songs in a local Beiz in Hundwil… sends shivers down your spine. The boy’s gaze reflecting the timeless mood of the evening with its archaic remnants of oral tradition where sounds more than words speak across the centuries and melodies get passed on from one generation to the next – in this neck of the woods, it’s an exclusively male domain.
