Ukulele & Languages

Coming to an acceptable level of Christmas mood has been rather difficult this year, partly because Christmas ukulele videos in languages other than English have been rather hard to find.

Santa did bring me a nice Christmas present though, with the addition of a new language to the Ukulele and Languages collection : Corsican.

With a couple of days to go before Christmas, I’d like to wish you all a very merry Christmas, filled with ukulele songs and languages.

If you’ve come here just for the Christmas videos, scroll down to the end of this post. (It’s a bad idea though because you’ll miss some really good videos).

Let’s start the World tour with non-christmas songs in various styles to suit different tastes.

This week’s search for ukulele videos from around the world started rather badly as 90% of the videos uploaded were either in English or of very poor quality. Things got brighter towards the end of the week however with two new languages to add to my list: Arabic and Vietnamese.

Add to these new languages a bit of magic from Brittany (please refrain from starting a technical discussion as to whether Nantes is part of Brittany), some alternative Greek mythology and a few interesting covers and you’ll end up with a good dose of ukulele entertainment for a good start to your weekend.
