Today’s videos will be a display of ukulele-, language- and video editing skills. We’ll be listening to Japanese, Swiss-German and Spanish (Cuba).
Sebi is Italian and lives in Switzerland and obviously is a multilinguist. It always makes me happy to listen to people singing in multiple languages !
Listen to Sebi singing in Japanese in this Japanese ballad called Koko ni iru yo. Thanks to Herman for pointing this video out to me.
…or in Swiss-German in this cover of a song called Ha Nur Welle Wüsse by Swiss singer and songwriter Adrian Stern. The dialect of the song is called Ostaargauer.
The lyrics are available in the information part of his YouTube video where Sebi has also provided a translation.
There are also plenty of videos in English on his YouTube channel. I haven’t found any video in Italian so maybe a request to Sebi ?
Update of the 14th of september : Sebi has informed me that he has done one single cover in Italian, a cover of a song called Salvami. Here it is:
Lyrics are available on the info section of the YouTube video
Our next ukulele linguist and video editor is The Gentle Surprise with a video in Spanish (Cuba). It is a cover of a song by Cuban vocal group Los Zafiros. The song is called Puchunguita, Ven.
Thanks to Al for mentioning this one.
