The WIES N BUAM performing at the famous Kocherlball in Munich. The Kocherlball or "Cooks’ Ball" is an early morning dance-fest that takes place around the Chinese Tower in Munich’s Englischer Garten Park. The Kocherlball was revived in 1989 for the 200th anniversary of the Englischer Garten and now it's more popular than ever. Each year about 15,000 people flock to the tower to recreate the old days.
The WIES N BUAM have pulled together to bring the traditional art of bavarian folk music to the next generation. With their work they intend to inspire all young musicians to believe in their tradition and to believe in where they belong to. With their performances they bring the true Bavarian tradition, the - so called - folk music of "yesterday" to the audience of today. Regional and Worldwide.
"Traditional does not mean boring!" - the credo of Ludwig Jocher. The young band leader recognized very early the huge potential of the so called "old school" folk music and 2015 at the age of 2o he brought together some of the most talented young bavarian folk musicians to join with the WIES N BUAM.
"Traditional does not mean boring!" - the young musicians are always telling the youngsters, who do not believe how fresh and entertaining bavarian folk music could be. But the most convincing argument is: The performance of the WIES N BUAM itself.
