Die Cuba Boarischen are another group performing a new kind of bavarian folk music. Their name is also their kind of music, so they perform bavarian music mixed with cuban rythms. In 2000, their leader Herbert Meixner, and his group passed their holidays in Cuba. But already in the first night, they spoke with a Cubano, and came to the idea to perform Cuban-Bavarian music. Listen to “Auf’m Berg und im Tal”:
You’ve never heard about “Neue Volksmusik”? It’s the mix of (alpine) bavarian and austrian folk music with new influences as jazz, hip-hop and rock. And one of the best known represantives is Herbert Pixner from Meran, South Tyrol.
