«Jimmy-Flitz» goes Bethlehem
the mouse from the cathedral follows a bright star. Together with a robot and a cat he crosses the alps, crosses the sea and a sandy deserts to find the Christmas child. After many adventures and encounters with foreign cultures a colored caravan of animals finally reaches the far away Bethlehem. And a mouse gives a little boy a little gift.



Some great swiss artists in episode 4
Christine Lauterburg combines jodel with techno • Tinu Heiniger paints landscapes in Swiss dialects • Steff la Cheffe mixes intelligent rap with pop • Julian Sartorius looking for the heartbeat of things. • Res Schmid & Gebr. Marti play avantgarde Swiss Ländler music • Roland Zoss combines world music and Swiss tradition.




Premiere Huttwil 1 dec. 2013

New and traditional Christmas carols
for harp, guitars, brass, percussion, drum, bass, accordeon, swiss organ.
Roland Zoss has composed this Christmas story from the perspective of the animals, such as the Swiss mouse Jimmy Flitz. In Bernese, one of the finest german dialects for emotions in Europe. With a holy respect and a fine sense of humor the children's songwriter brings a bouquet of modern Christmas carols to us. Christmas music for three generations from kids to grown-ups.
