Learning Icelandic on Learn Icelandic Online takes up a lot of my time these days. I have promised myself I would not travel to Iceland before I am able to hold a basic conversation in Icelandic.

Latest Ukulele World Tour Post
A Spring Selection of ukulele videos from around the world to wish you an excellent weekend. Videos from the continents of North America, Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and Australia, all a pleasure for your ears !
Now, is there a ukulele player reading this post feeling valorous enough to set up an expedition to Antartica, the missing continent on Ukulele and Languages ? You won’t have to carry a flag with you, that’s all been done before; all I’m asking for is a tiny ukulele song in the middle of the ice packs of Antartica. I wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt trying so I suggest you watch this video before you make hasty plans to follow the tracks of Roald Amundsen. No volunteer ? Ah well, I don’t blame you, take it easy, make yourself a warm cup of tea and enjoy these videos instead !

It will take you on a road trip across Iceland towards the end of the summer, to the sound of guitar and ukulele accompanying the vocal harmonies of singers Gígja Skjaldardóttir and Bjartey Sveinsdóttir.
This song is taken from Ylja’s album Ylja which you can purchase on Bandcamp here.
