Today I have something interesting to show you. This is a video of Svavar Knutur singing a song as a memorial to Bergþóra Árnadóttir, also an Icelandic singer. Oh... and its on the Ukulele too.
Svavar Knutur says he discovered the ukulele while in a music store in London. He was looking for a musical instrument to bring back to iceland, when a ukulele caught his eye.
He says: "The simplicity and elegance of the Ukulele really captivated me and also the beauty of its soft sound-scape."
We all agree Svavar.
This isn't really a video that I would normally watch.
First of all I cant understand a single line of it.
Also, this may be the scariest man in Iceland.
But after watching it two or three times, it literally was like a siren song. I couldn't stop. I'm not sure if it was his voice, the accent, or the secret powers of the Icelandic natives, but the dudes got a gift.
