Happy Saint Valentine’s to the sound of the «Crans-Montana World Cup anthem»

Instead of a classic declaration of love on Valentine’s Day, the World Cup races organising committee are showing their affection for the fascinating world of competition alpine skiing in music.

If you click on the link below, you can hear the exclusive « Crans-Montana World Cup anthem » composed and played by the most popular Swiss folk music group, Oesch’s die Dritten. The rhythm and lyrics (in three languages) are immediately catchy, and give the impression of being amongst a jubilant crowd of fans.

Happy listening !

They have enjoyed over 200 television appearances, and over 1,600 concerts in 14 countries ! Their Swiss « Globetrotter » tour in Spring 2019 was an incredible success.  They performed to packed venues on every stop of the tour. Melanie Oesch : « The term Globetrotter has given us total musical and narrative freedom. We like to include some of our personal history and experiences in our concerts, sharing them with our faithful audiences ».

If you ask Oesch’s fans what makes this music group so special and so appreciated, they say it is their uniqueness, their diversity, their unique sound, their unity, not just as a family, but also as a music group, as well as their unmistakable sense of humour on stage.

Oesch’s die Dritten are already very much looking forward to their concert on 22 February 2020 in Crans-Montana. Melanie Oesch : « We absolutely love skiing. Being able to perform as part of the Women’s World Cup event is very special for us. »

It’s sure to be a wonderful evening, in a packed venue ! Oesch’s die Dritten are quite simply authentic.

The folk music group Les Amis de Sonville will also be present

The Valais folk music group Les Amis de Sonville will also be present. They will be warming up the crowd before the Oesch’s die Dritten concert with their music which has sprung from the local area, and which invites the audience to dance. For many years now, at all of their concerts, these musicians from Nendaz, who are all related, guarantee a tradition of pure folk music. Their presence at the « Maison Suisse » in Sestrières during the 2006 Turin Olympics, and their musical journey to Quebec have been remembered ever since.  After the great success of their performance on the RTS programme Kiosque à Musique and during the 2019 Federal Folk Music Festival in Crans-Montana, Les Amis de Sonville will once again be returning to the Haut-Plateau.
