Enrosadira

The yodel that I currently practice on my way to work is called 'Enrosadira'. I downloaded it from Amazon because it sounds great, and I wondered what the title meant. Now that I can do the yodel good enough to publish it on YouTube, I found some time to research the meaning.

Enrosadira means 'to turn rose-coloured' in the language of the Ladins. You can watch the pale, rocky walls of the Dolomites change colours at sunset, on days with a special atmosphere. This phenomenon is caused by the chemical composition of calcium carbonate and magnesium, which gives the mountains a rosy colour that gradually turns to purple.
