Musicians in the  eld of New Swiss Folk Music produce their repertoire drawing on material from Swiss traditional music. Following very re ective approaches they (re-)construct Swiss folk music, create new meanings, and inject it with new values. It is particularly insightful to compare the process of repertoire-making with the processes of inventory-making of intangible cultural heritage: in this particular moment musicians decide and re ect on which pieces, songs and melodies are worth to be played and thus worth to be safeguarded.
