Ukulele & Languages

Different countries,
Different cultures
one common language... the ukulele.

HappySad, Maja Koman, Ukulele and Polish

20 2011

Let me invite you to a trip to Poland today where you’ll get to hear two Polish ukulele players in two different styles. Tune your ears to the Polish language while listening to the songs and the interviews…

HappySad is a popular Polish rock band formed in 2001. In the following acoustic live session for Balcony TV Poznan, two members of the band perform the song Kostuchna from their album Mów mi dobrze on ukulele and guitar. Check out the steady ukulele strumming and interesting chord progression

If you wish to skip the introduction of the band in Polish, start the video at 1:47.

If anyone would like to try and study the ukulele strumming from the song Kostuchna, this instrumental cover by Szymon should help you visualise the chords played.

Maja Koman is a Polish singer and ukulele player. The only performance in Polish I could find was her participation in a Polish Music Contest where she seems to have impressed the jury with a children lullaby called Stary niedźwiedź mocno śpi. (Old Bear sleeps heavily)

Maja Koman seems to sing mostly in English. Here is her acoustic performance for Balcony TV Poznan.

If you wish to skip the introduction and simply listen to the song, start the video at 0:48.
