Chapter 7 discusses the identity politics of alpine music in Austria; alongside art music, it defined the nation until the turn of the millennium. The chapter describes how past and present adherents of the far right claimed the alpine as German-speaking rather than multiethnic, and as traditional in its gender roles. The chapter then explores how intellectuals and artists proposed new concepts of the nation. Neue Volksmusik (new folk music) was one expression, while other musicians such as Hubert von Goisern were explicit in their criticisms especially by the early 2000s, when far-right political parties joined Austria’s national governing coalition. The chapter discusses musicians of the 2000s who added female and multiethnic dimensions to the alpine while they fostered audience participation. Hotel Palindrone blended Celtic and alpine sounds, Netnakisum reversed assumptions about gender, and singer Agnes Palmisano recalled earlier times when female yodelers performed in Vienna salons.
