Focus of this week’s Ukulele World Tour will be on folk songs. I really like folk songs as they often relate real-life stories, thus revealing a fragment of a country’s history and culture.

I love it when ukulele players who upload videos give full details about the background of the songs they are performing. I have found a nice selection of these for you to enjoy this week.

Nice language finds this week too with a ukulele video in Chamorro and another in Hungarian.

Country: Australia / Language: English

In the meantime, here are some ukulele videos from the UK, the US, France, BrazilGermany, KoreaDenmark and the Czech Republic.
