Growing up on the Austrian countryside the local brass band is often the only live music available. MusikarbeiterInnenkapelle has been formed “to overcome this trauma” (as is written on their website) and to show that brass music can be much more than the ever-present traditional folk music from our childhood days. At Popfest in Vienna Austria’s (most probably) biggest band goes for a bombastic performance, that leaves nothing to be desired. Joined by various artists from Skero over Ankathie Koi to Yasmo, they play an eclectic set with songs ranging from Bilderbuch’s “Maschin” over Kraftwerk’s “Das Model” to the Italian partisan song “Bella Ciao”.
