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 !

Time for a Thai break today !

There is a large community of ukulele players in Thailand so I have selected a few videos for your entertainment. Sorry if I don’t attempt to translate the title of the songs or any other information, I don’t speak Thai and I am rather skeptical with what Google Translate comes up with. If you speak Thai and can help me, please leave me a comment !

First stop is at the Thailand International Ukulele Fest 2013 where we’ll listen to a song by Singto Numchok, a very popular ukulele player in Thailand.
