Discovery and introduction to playing this instrument
Aimé Devènes, passionate about music and a brass band director for 25 years, began blowing down an alphorn with great joy. Soon he began to share this passion with the other members of his family. At present two of his children and two of his grand-children have become part of the troop, as well as many of his friends.
Originally used to call the mountain herds, the Alpine horn has gradually become an instrument in its own right over the years.
