The band “Die Strottern” has become a trade mark in the young Viennese music scene. In old Viennese dialect, a Strotter is a tinker. Our Strottern are two young men from Vienna who travel the roads looking for old songs and dance tunes that fell by the wayside and writing new ones as they go. Their bedrock is Wienerlieder, literally, “Viennese songs” and also a uniquely Austrian song genre that is famous all over the world. What is forgotten too frequently, is that the Wienerlieder genre is still evolving. The Strottern are the winners of the Austrian World Music Award 2006 and the AMADEUS Austrian Music Award 2009.

About the Wienerlied: The Wienerlied – or Viennese Song – developed in a melting pot of nations endowing it with a vast range of musical influences. The lyrics are all about living in a big city and how the people in Vienna cope with the daily grind, sometimes with humour and melancholy, sometimes with irony and sometimes with all kinds of substances that knock you out, first of all the good Austrian wine.

Performing: Strottern-Concerts are always a charming and remarkable experience for their audience. Employing intelligent and humorous linkmanship throughout their concerts, they manage to bypass language barriers and to uncover cultural similarities – be it in Africa, India, Canada, Germany or elsewhere. See them once and you´ll want to see them again.
