Not only the local marching bands cater for music and entertainment in your holidays
Musicians in traditional costume, that's what you might come across very often in your holidays in Valgardena, due to the fact that the marching band of the valley perform on various occasions such as festive days, festivals on alpine pastures or village fairs. Traditions are of utmost importance to the population and almost every child learns to play a music instrument. Many also join the local marching bands.
The Val Gardena initiative Jëuni de Mujiga also wants to promote musical culture, especially among young people, and support them in their musical education.
When it comes to music, also the most famous composer and music producer of the Val Gardena must be mentioned: Giorgio Moroder.
Of course also the local folk music duo "Die Ladiner" is worth to be mentioned. The two citizens of Valgardena, Joakin and Otto, won the "Gran Prix der Volksmusik", a music competition, and have their fans all over the world. To their honour, every year at the end of October, there is also a huge festival taking place in South Tyrol.
