There’s Volksmusik. And then there’s Volxmusik

I have NO IDEA while people find it strange that a New Zealander should make a film about German folk music.

Not the commercial dross by showbiz-types to an audience of metronomes that takes up waaay to much prime-time TV.

Not the stuff that was hijacked during the Third Reich to underpin  rampant nationalism.

The REAL stuff, sung by real people and following traditions that go back centuries.

Starts in theatres today. Can’t wait.

Here’s the trailer.
