Ukulele World Tour : Spring Selection

19 2016

A Spring Selection of ukulele videos from around the world to wish you an excellent weekend. Videos from the continents of North America, Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and Australia, all a pleasure for your ears !

Now, is there a ukulele player reading this post feeling valorous enough to set up an expedition to Antartica, the missing continent on Ukulele and Languages ? You won’t have to carry a flag with you, that’s all been done before; all I’m asking for is a tiny ukulele song in the middle of the ice packs of Antartica. I wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt trying so I suggest you watch this video before you make hasty plans to follow the tracks of Roald Amundsen. No volunteer ? Ah well, I don’t blame you, take it easy, make yourself a warm cup of tea and enjoy these videos instead !

1. Canada

Rob aka sanfordandsong accompanies the band Leaf Rapids on a cover of David Bowie‘s The Man Who Sold the World. I really like the atmosphere the ukulele creates.

2. France

Exquisite vocal harmonies coupled with cheekiness, Les Poupées Gonflées have just released their latest song, Sad Song.

3. Slovakia

Strempek Band, a band from Slovakia perform Celosvetová kríza. 

4. Tunisia and Algeria

Multi-instrumentalist Hmenou from Tunisia covers the song Hchich et Pois Chiche from Algerian band Djmawi_Africa. 

5. Columbia

Esteman and La Esteband from Columbia perform  El Pimentón,. Lyrics can be found here.

6. Ukraine

Ukulele & More make the ukulele rock in a cover Моє море (My Sea) by Ukrainian band Скрябін

7. China

Sasa sings in Chinese on WAikiki beach Hawaii

8. Australia

Straight from the outback, Fidel and Sarah Anne perform a traditional banjo tune, Greasy Coat on ukulele and guitar. Clawhammer technique sounds great !

9. Thaïland

Zen Patiphan performs El Fragoberto an original ukulele instrumental.

    A very interesting selection, Armelle ! Different continents and different styles, this is very enjoyable !
    But I am very sad that Antarctica is missing, I am taking the first boat that goes to Terre-Adélie and during the journey I will compose the song “How cold this place for my Kala !”

    @Ganymede Gwilym : How brave of you ! I can’t wait to hear the song !
    You might create a new musical style!
    Make some scientific observations on the effects of deep frost on nylon strings and on the sound of your Kala! Have a safe trip ! :-)
