Asia, Canada, Ireland, Russia : Weekly Ukulele World Tour

16 2011

I’d like to start this World Tour Post with a video of Bosko & Honey playing a tune called Earthquake together with Gensblue from Japan.

My thoughts go to the people of Japan at this very difficult time.

You can help Bosko and Honey support the Japan Disaster Appeal by buying their Ukulele Safari Compilation CD. Full details are available from their site.

Country: United-States / Language: Chinese and English

Let’s remain in Asia with Jazmine and Clara perform a Chinese folk song called Mo Li Hua – 茉莉花 (Jasmine Flowers).

For more information about this song and if you’d like to discover other non ukulele versions, check this post.

Country: China / Language: Instrumental

It is rather rare to find ukulele videos from China, here is a Chinese instrumental 岸部真明《花》hana.

Country: Nepal / Language: Nepali (Nepalese)

Seto Makura performs a song by Raju Lama and Sunita Subba called Lako Maya

Country: Canada / Language: English

Change of continent, change of style, here is the band My Kind of Karma performing Stolen Boat

Country: Ireland / Language: English

With St Patrick’s day being tomorrow, I needed to feature an Irish folksong today.

Happy St Patrick’s day to all my Irish friends !

The song is called Carrickfergus, and is performed by Garret. You can find historical details about the song and discover its Irish lyrics on Wikipedia.

Country: Russia / Language: Instrumental

It’s been a while since I have last found any videos from Russia, here is a Russian guitar and ukulele duet.
