Ukulele songs in Dutch, Yorkshire dialect and Russian

05 2009

I was very pleased to see that my first post on Ukulele and native languages was well received.
Thanks to all who left a comment, whether on the blog or via YouTube.
HaileIsela and Al both mentioned their interest in a Gaelic ukulele video but I’m still looking. So if you know of any, send me the link (Use the contact form).

Here are today’s additions to the Ukulele and Languages videos:

9. Dutch
I have lived in the Netherlands a couple of years and I was pleased to see that I could still understand some Dutch, this guy’s diction is so very clear !

10. Yorkshire Dialect- Barnsley Anthem Dun’t Put Thi Muck In Our Dustbin

Thanks to Al for submitting this one. If you are wondering what on earth this guy is singing, check out the “more info” link on the YouTube page. You will find the lyrics and an explanation about the songs.

11. Russian – Подмосковные Вечера (Moscow nights)
You will find out everything about the song, its meaning, stories attached to it, etc..  at the beginning of the video thanks to Ken Bank‘s explanations. The song really starts around 2:15 in the video.

That’s it for today !
