Voodoo Marmalade

Voodoo Marmalade – Kiss (MP3)
Voodoo Marmalade – Faith/Ring of Fire (MP3)
Voodoo Marmalade – Ya Rayah/Mariachi
Voodoo Marmalade – Boi de Haxixe/Tahi (MP3) via hi5

It’s a familiar formula:

Step 1: Get a bunch of ukulele players.
Step 2: Play some cover songs.
Step 3: Have a good time.

Voodoo Marmalade – who declare themselves to be, “the first Portuguese ukulele band to exist,” play a number of songs that would fit into any ukulele orchestra/ensemble (Ring of Fire, Hit Me Baby…). What marks them out as something a bit more interesting is the way they throw in more recondite choices such as Zeca Baleiro’s Boi de Haxixe (best known, to me atleast, for Por Onde AndarĂ¡ Stephen Fry and Rachid Taha’s Ya Rayah. What do you mean you’ve heard Barra Barra?

    Hey there Woodshed!

    We had come across your site before. Great site by the way; very complete.

    Thanks for writing those words about us, we are truly honoured.

    You’re definitely right about Step 3…
