European Alpine roots music played with vigour passion virtuosity and a whole lot of fun

Bagpipes from all over Europe, Irish-Italian mandola, Swedish nyckelharp, jew's-harp, e-bass, saxophone, ... More than twenty instruments and four musicians.

For their last album JODULATOR, released in June 2011 they've got the GERMAN RECORD CRITICs AWARD. On this album besides their adventurous and fresh interpretations of European roots and their own Austrian folk tradition along with many self penned tunes, Jodulator 3000 appears on stage. Alongside the usual acoustic panopoly that marks out that unique sound that is HOTEL PALINDRONE, electronic, human beat-boxing, live-drums and drum-loops gets into the act ... and not just by accident ...

They've already won over audiences at WOMAD & Towersey Festival (UK), Rainforest World Music Festival (Malysia) and Ollin Kan Festival (Mexico) and without a doubt are poised as a band to make a big international impression for the future ... For dance or concert , fun and musical excellence they'e perfect.

Already with an international recognition based on appearances at ... Tradit Festival and Concertgebouw Amsterdam (NL), Austrian Cultural Forum Rome and Berlin, Alpentoene (CH), Salzburger Festspiele (Oe), Boombal-Festival (BE), Fete de la Vielle Anost (F), ... and in collaberation with Ian Smith at Frusion Broadstairs-Folkweek (GB), Towersey-Festival (GB) etc.
