Yodelobit: Ruedi Rymann

The family of Ruedi Rymann, yodeler, have announced his death at the age of 75. Although primarily a farmer and cheesemaker, Rymann was a hero in Switzerland after his recording of Dr Schacher Seppli became popular on Swiss Radio.

Rymann was a Swiss yodeler; unlike other Alpine nations, the Swiss don't use the "eee" sound when they yodel.
