Djo, djoiri
Last updated: 22.04.17
I had never heard or heard of "Djo, djoiri" until coming across it in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 2. This is a wonderful South Tyrolian "Andachtsjodler" (devout yodel) first noted by Jos. Pommer in Sterzing around 1830. I love singing it majestically in a swelling bass, it's a marvellous feeling as the chords coming from my concertina reverberate and interact with the sound of my voice within my chest. I usually follow this song up with Nachgesang which is a similar type of song.
