Musikkapelle Lajen
























Every town and village in South Tyrol has a band, so also Lajen / Lajon in the Isarco Valley.
Bands have a long tradition in South Tyrol and have an important function in village life.

Here a short video.

I love this! What great fun. Wonderful costumes and instruments. I really like the photo of the tuba and reflection. All your photos are superb, though!

Just looking at your photos, I could hear this great band. Thanks for the video that provided the actual music.

Danke dir vom ganzen Herzen! So schön zu sehen das nicht die ganze Welt vom iPhone überwältigt ist und es noch noch etliche Plätze gibt wo Traditionen eingehalten werden. Dorfleben schlägt Fernweh und iPhone Leben jeder Zeit.
Entzückende Kostüme und gut zu sehen dass die Geschlechtseinheit eingetroffen ist.
