We close on a non-nostril note. Yodelling with a dub beat. Dub music is a worldwide style (developed in Jamaica) of futzing with the bass and drum tracks of songs, and adding thick production effects to transform those songs. Robert Cummings, a Canadian drummer living in Berlin, has started applying dub ideas to folk music from the Bavarian Alps. He and his band call the project "Alpendub." Produced by Monika Mueller.
