A rather rare find this week, a ukulele song in Reunion Creole.
Reunion Creole is a semi-creole language spoken on the Reunion island which is mostly spoken and rarely written. It borrows heavily from French which is the official language on the island, but has a few words coming from other languages such as Malagazy, Hindi, Portuguese and Tamil.

Translator François St Omer has translated a couple of Astérix comics in Reunion Creole.
Seeing Reunion creole written is a bit strange for a French speaker. It looks mostly like phonetic French with the addition of a few extra words that are unfamiliar.
As for the sound of Reunion creole, enjoy Uky May ‘s cover of a song titled Oté Gran Mèr by Reunion band Ousanousava.
