The Vienna Boys Choir is one such institute that has a long history dating back to 1498 in helping the young kids learn about the traditional music form of their country and take an active part in reviving it.
The most popular form of the Austrian folk music is Viennese schrammelmusik which is generally played with an accordion and a double necked guitar. This form of music arose as a mixture of rural Austrian music along with Slovenian, Hungarian, Moravian and Bavarian music.
The people of these countries were immigrants who crowded the slums of Vienna and contributed to the famous music style. This music form has got the name schrammelmusik which comes from the most popular and influential performers in schrammelmusik’s history, brothers Johann and Joseph Schrammel.
