From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Luxembourg is a small European country, and one of the Low Countries. Its music and cultural heritage is Germanic. The national music federation is called LGDA; another important institution is the Luxembourg Conservatory of Music. Music festivals include the Echternach Music Festival and the Rock um Knuedler. The national radio station, Radio Luxembourg, is listened to throughout Europe. Modern Luxembourg is home to an array of performers, folk, classical and pop, as well as rock, hip hop and other genres like hardstyle, jumpstyle and hardcore.

The national anthem is "Ons Hémécht" ("Our Homeland"), which was written by Jean-Antoine Zinnen (music) and Michel Lentz (lyrics). It has been the national anthem since 1895.
