Ukulele Christmas from around the world

13 2009

Looking for ukulele videos these days is very annoying with about 10 000 uploads a day (I’m hardly exagerating) of the same video of the little Asian kid doing a cover of I’m Yours. Still, I managed to find a few Christmas songs from around the world for you to  enjoy !

1. France

Petit Papa Noël covered by the Good Vibes Ukulele Orchestra. They should have called themselves “The Rolling Ukes”.

    It’s crazy how often that kid’s video is getting reposted. It’s about half the videos. It’s even worse on Twitter.

    Anyhoo, thanks for the vids. I think the Canadian animation wins on style and Italy wins for good times.

    Al : I know. The worst thing with this video is how many people are claiming to have the original video uploaded directly from their webcam, sometimes from very unlikely parts of the world…

    Canada and Italy, your vote is registered. Looks like nobody is going to challenge that ;)
