Viennese dialect, Cucaracha, summer Ukulele World Tour

16 2011

This week’s Ukulele World Tour has a certain summer feel and adds a new dialect to listen to with the German Viennese dialect from Austria.

Herman Vandecauter, Paulien and Alex invite us to Spain with their version of La Cucaracha. Meanwhile, David Owens from the US tells us about Paul Simon‘s fifty ways to leave your lover

Charles Song from Brazil will let you revise some classics while Amanda from Taiwan and Sparkly Rhythm will conclude this post with ukulele covers in Chinese and Thai.

Gofel and Ronaldo perform Glaabst i bin bleed (meaning ‘Do you think I am stupid’) from the Viennese band Worried Men Skiffle Group.
