Oceanian Islands Ukulele Tour

16 2014

 As we are settling well into autumn here, with the light decreasing a bit more each day, why not set the gloom aside and head for sunny destinations where bright-sounding ukulele rhythms will cheer us up ?

Oceania is a perfect choice for that purpose. To start our tour, here is a map to help you locate the various islands we will be visiting.

1. French Polynesia

First sunny glimpse brings us to Tahiti in the French Polynesia where the string band Te Ava Piti gives a live performance of the song E Hee Te Va on a beach.

2. Melanesia

Moving on to Melanesia where a group of musicians from Vanuatu and South Pacific called Natano Pasifika perform Ni Duwe.

Thanks to Ron Hale from pointing me to this video.

Just to make you travel around several islands, here is some information about the band Natano Pasifika : Mars Melto  is from the Malakula island, Tio bang  from the island of Ambrym, Yaya  from New Caledonia, Anthony Roy  from the Gaua island, Robert from the Tongoa island and Gordy  from the Vanua Lava island.

When a Russian meets  and jams with a Vanuatu Band, here is what it sounds like :

3. Micronesia

A group of young ladies singing on a beach were filmed by Dr. Marelli while he was visiting the Island of Pakin, Micronesia.

 4. Marshall Islands
