Ukulele & Languages

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

Koalas, Croatia and Slovakia

08 2009

Koalas seem like a very appropriate subject, especially for Mr Jaynickel from Belgium, lucky winner of Bosko & Honey‘s Join the Safari contest.

Oddly enough, koalas crop up in a ukulele video in Croatian, by Karkanjerac :

No luck in my search for a Slovakian ukulele player yet, but I did however find a video that was filmed in Slovakia, though you won’t really be able to tell.

Pvnova and a friend, Erasmus students in Bratislava, are doing a cool ukulele and guitar cover of I like what you say by Nada Surf. The song has been given an international feel, with extra verses in French and German in the end  (Their grammar is voluntarily dodgy to fit whith the rhythm).

Update : I have now found a Slovakian ukulele player, playing a traditional tune in this video uploaded just yesterday:

    I love that Slovak song, Armelle! I’ve subscribed to the poster’s YouTube channel. Thanks for cluing me in!

    Acilius : It’s nice, isn’t it? He has quite a few other videos but this one was my favourite. Glad you liked it too.

    I loved the duets for ukulele and fujara. Maybe I’ll take a page from your book and start a new site called “Fujara and Languages.” Entry one will be “Fujara Songs in Slovak.” Whether there will be an entry two I don’t know.

    Acilius : Good luck with the Fujara and Languages site. I wonder if you’ll be able to find a Latin Fujara video :)
