Nice! She's playing a quite old (40s or 50s) Hohner Pokerwork melodeon. I have a slightly more recent model (mine's from the 70s) of the same instrument myself.

Thanks for responding guys 🙂👍
What struck me about the number was the very deep tone of her accordion and how much she was able to get out of it entertainment wise !🙂
I don't speak the language, but I got the impression its meant to be something like "dueling accordions "?🤔

The melodeon (sometimes called the "button accordion") is a very nice instrument. It can only play in two keys (D/G, G/C and B/C are the most common), and has a limited range, but the basses give you good possibilities for simple accompaniments. VERY popular for folk music. They're very small, lightweight (typically only 2-3 kg), and inexpensive for a basic plain wooden one.
