Steff La Cheffe

Steff La Cheffe is a 23 year old Swiss from Breitsch, Switzerland. Yes, in case you were wondering, that language in the above song is indeed swiss-german. For those of you that don’t know. Swiss-German is a spoken-only language and most of the time sounds like you have a sore throat. I send a hat tip to Steff La Cheffe for pulling it off to actually make swiss german sound hip and cool.

(thank you Pascal)

  1. and where exactly is Breitsch again?

  2. You made my day with this. It reminds me a bit of Zuboly, an amazing Hungarian hip hop folk band.

  3. I’m not getting the sore throat thing.

  4. Zum ersten mal ist Swiss-German irgendwie sexy … !

  5. Barry, here, watch this video, where people are trying to say the mother of all swiss-german words, Chuchichaestli, which means kitchen cupboard:

  6. NOW I’m getting it!

  7. dies sollte mien handyklingelton werden!
    love it, thanks for sharing!

  8. More Swiss-German rap… Zurich dialect, but talking about some Appenzeller :-)

  9. Breitsch is Breitenrain a part of the city of Bern. Also the language spoken in Switzerland is “Swiss” and has just a little in common with German!

  10. Wow. Very hip for Swiss German : )

  11. That’s really weird, it’s sounds like Dutch or Afrikaans to me, coming from The Netherlands myself. I speak German as well but I can clearly hear words in Dutch. Funky song too!

  12. Very weird, i know Steffe la Cheffe, but singing, but good song, it’ s just i didn’t was expecting something like that, but like i said, she’s good, and llike her voice. Weirdest thing is that she’s singing in german, and not in english, so very goof for you Steffe!
