Talerschwingen is a “music instrument” played by musicians in the traditional swiss folk music in the eastern part if Switzerland, especially in Appenzell and Toggenburg. While swinging a silver five swiss franc coin (Fünfliber) in a pottery bowl (Talerbecken), the player yodels in very special way (Zäuerlen). Now you can play this without yodeling or a real bowl in your hands on your mobile device.
