15000 slaves from Africa every year
Millions of immigrants from Europe

FORMED COUNTRY/WESTERN MUSIC Estimated that there are

400,000 Swiss immigrants

5,500,000 German immigrants from 1820-1920

And these people created a new genre of Yodel, Western Yodel Hawaii In Hawaii, they already had their own method of singing in Falsetto

Yodeling is now common throughout the world, but in different styles,
that reflects the area's feature that can be cultural, geological, economical, social etc. and I think that looking at these differences is just as interesting to listen to its unique musical characteristics. I hope that everyone had a better understanding about yodeling, and it will be great if some people actually thought that this was interesting. THANK YOU
