A cover of a song by Greek singer Leonida Balafas (Λεωνίδας Μπαλάφας). The song is called Πυροσβεστήρας [Purosbesteras] – Fire Extinguisher and is performed by the band Apostolos Gougoulakis & Band.

5. Country: Malaysia / Language: Instrumental

An instrumental ukulele cover of a Kadazan song written by Irene ThaddeusKa’Andaman Ku Doid Kampung. I wish this were not an instrumental cover as Kadazan would have been a nice addition to the collection of languages of this blog. Kadazan is an Austronesian language spoken in the State of Sabah in Malaysia.
