The music plays here in Austria

The Amadeus Austrian Music Awards were presented for the third time yesterday, Wednesday, evening in a glittering gala in the ORF centre

Vienna (APA): Zabine and Bauchklang have cleaned up, each winning in two categories ...

... Zabine copied the previous year's winner Marquee, who were presenting their new single Wonderman this time. The former Alpinkatze won in the two categories "Newcomer" and "National Female Solo Artist". The artist expressed her thanks for them with a yodel. "I have already told people in India too," laughed Zabine after the show. The prize is "cool", she is pleased. "Because after all, I'm not heard so often on the radio, since I've not really offered up easy stuff."

... Like last year, Hubert von Goisern, who was presented the Amadeus for Jazz/Blues/ Folk album, found critical words about the ORF. About the video to music from his work Trad, he said scathingly, "They were old pictures from 92. Does the ORF not have anything new? The Germans make the new pictures ..." The Dance Act of the Year, DJ Taylor & Flow could also not resist a sideswipe: "We managed this without the support of any media."
