Ukulele and Languages

ukulele and languagesUkulele and Languages collects ukulele videos in (you’ll never guess!) various languages.

The latest post includes a couple of videos of Danish songs; this one, by “EvertParkLars,” is particularly likable.

Voodoo Marmalade is apparently Portugal‘s answer to the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.  They are off to a good start; considering that UOGB has been at it for 24 years, I hope no one will think I’m being sniffy if I say that Voodoo Marmalade has some way to go before they match them. 

This page of eastern European ukuleleists ends with a video in Polish called “Ukulele Kajaki” (“Ukulele Kayak.”)  I don’t understand a word of the lyrics, but the guy’s voice sounds like it’s saying something hilarious.

Is there Latin?  Of course there’s Latin!  Here’s “Love Machine” redone as “Machina Amoris.”

    Well I thought Voodoo Marmalade’s “Rawhide” was pretty damn good!

    It is! I like all of their English-Portuguese mashups as well.

  5. Acilius,

    thanks for the post about Ukulele & Languages. I have now moved my site to so it would be great if you could update the link in this post.
    The new U&L site contains a category called Language Fun:
    I’ve added a link to your language section in my Languages links on my site.
    Interesting posts! Loved the link with the obscure English words.

    Thanks for the feedback, Armelle! I’ll update the links to U & L. Thanks for mentioning us there; for your information, we are based in the USA, not the UK.

  7. Oups… I’ll update the country right away. Thanks for letting me know.
