Bavarian women challenging a male tradition

Members of the 'Werdenfelser Alphornblaeserinnen,' an all-female Bavarian Alphorn band, prepare their instruments for a concert near Muensing at Lake Starnberg in Germany on Nov. 30. Despite being a male-dominated tradition, the band regularly tours the surrounding southern Bavarian towns playing this traditional Alpine instrument.
