Background

Culture Shock – Austria

Written by on 2 décembre 2019

Culture Shock is a new series that we have launched on Euradio. Each week we take one European country and put it under the spotlight, looking at its musical and cultural outputs. Each day there are two instalments of the show; one looking at music, and the other at culture. This week we headed over to Austria to take a look at its unique language and strange traditions!

For this week’s very first edition, Bella walks us through the history of the country that we now know as Austria.

Austria’s capital Vienna has long been a home to some of history’s most legendary composers. Katherine tells us more about them here!

The Austrians do love their coffee! Learn more about Austrian cafe culture with Bella.

Katherine tells us about the event that changed European pop music forever. Eurovision 2014.

What language do they speak in Austria? Austrian? Nope! Bella tries to decrypt Austria’s unique version of the German language!

What’s the first type of music that comes to your head when you think of Austria? If you answered yodeling, you’ve come to the right place.

Austria has some rather unusual and potentially frightening traditions. Here’s Bella to reassure you that they’re not so scary after all!

Vienna has always been a hub for classical musicians, but did you know about its strong ties with jazz?

For Bella’s final edition of Culture Shock this week, she tells us all about Gustav Klimt and how his art coped through the Second World War.

Germany is usually known as the European country with the biggest electronic and dance music scene. But what about its neighbours? Katherine dives into Austrian electronic music!
