Oom-pah

The oom-pah sound is usually made by the tuba alternating between the root (tonic) of the chord and the 5th (dominant) — this sound is said to be the oom. The pah is played on the off-beats by higher-pitched instruments such as the clarinet , accordion or trombone . Oompah is often associated with Volkstümliche Musik , a form of popular German music, and with polka . In triple time genres such as the waltz it is oom-pah-pah. The musical Oliver! contains a song named "Oom-Pah-Pah ", which is named after the oom-pah. A more modern variation is the playing of contemporary pop and rock songs in an Oompah style, by bands such as Global Kryner (Austria) and Oompah Brass (UK) (who dubbed the style "Oompop")

Strength Through Joy
KRAFT DURCH FREUDE (German for STRENGTH THROUGH JOY, abbreviated KDF) was a large state-operated leisure organization in Nazi Germany . It was a part of the German Labour Front (Deutsche Arbeitsfront, DAF), the national German labour organization at that time. Set up as a tool to promote the advantages of National Socialism to the people, it soon became the world's largest tourism operator of the 1930s. KdF was supposed to bridge the class divide by making middle-class leisure activities available to the masses. This was underscored by having cruises with passengers of mixed classes and having them, regardless of social status, draw lots for allocation of cabins. Another less ideological goal was to boost the German economy by stimulating the tourist industry out of its slump from the 1920s. It was quite successful up until the outbreak of World War II
