History of Yodeling

A Brief History of Yodeling
Yodeling can be found all over the world and from many different cultures. You can hear yodeling in Europe, Africa, Hawaii and Mexican, to name a few. Many people do Alpine yodeling. Alpine or Swiss yodeling originates in Europe. Believe it or not, it was used as a way for goat herdmen to communicate with each other.

The American style of yodeling comes from both Europe and African influences. In the 1930′s, 40′s and 50′s, it gained great popularity. Artists including Elton Britt, Patsy Montana, Jimmie Rogers, Gene Autry, Slim Whitman and Hank Williams yodeled in many of their recordings.

I also really like the yodeling of Rosalie Allen. She is the first one that I listened to.

If you like yodeling you can hear me doing a combination of these great yodelers styles on my old cd as well as my new cd that will be released in October.

I owe so much to these great yodelers. They helped carry on a tradition that has continued into the 21st century. Without them………..I would never have been able to enjoy the blessing of learning to yodel.
