ALMA - Transalpine concert
In their project ALMA, five young musicians illustrate their idea of how traditional Austrian music translates to the present and to a contemporary audience. With violins, double bass, accordion, and vocals as well as with great ease, passion, and originality, they make the roots grow musical shoots and blossoms. Their music knows neither geographic constraint nor stylistic boundaries – it is inspired as much by travelling as it is from local culture.
In 2013, their first album “Nativa” was released on the label col legno; their second album “Transalpin” followed in May 2015.
