Franz "Franzl" Lang

Franz "Franzl" Lang (28 December 1930 – 6 December 2015), known as the Yodelking (German: Jodlerkönig), was a yodeller from Bavaria, Germany. Lang also sang and played the guitar and the accordion and was the author of several books on yodelling. Lang's genre is German folk music; he typically sang in the Bavarian dialect of the rural Alpine regions.

By general consensus, Lang was considered to be the best Alpine yodeller in the world.

Raised in Munich, Lang trained as a toolmaker. He started playing his trademark accordion at the age of nine. His greatest hit was his 1968 composition "Kufstein-Lied". For many years in the 1970s, he was a permanent feature of musical variety shows on West German television, especially on the ZDF programme Lustige Musikanten.

Lang has sold more than 10 million recordings; he has earned 20 gold records and one platinum record within the German recording industry. He was known as one of the most famous yodellers to have ever lived.
