I’ve been much enamored with Norwegian ukuleles since NRK was very nice about ukuleles and about Uke Hunt. I need to learn Norwegian as Google offers no translation of ‘oppgangstid’ and translates part of it as, “Here he publishes medical personnel, ukulele videos as well as notes and tabs to be a virtuoso.” (I’m pretty sure Dr Sparkles isn’t an actual doctor).
So, it’s time to pay it back and give some love to Norway’s greatest ukulele act. Again my translation skills have let me down, but here’s what I’ve been able to gather about Yoyoyo Acapulco:
- They’re not from Acapulco but Vestre Gausdal, Norway.
- They’re being harassed by an unfriendly UK record label.
- They make some lovely indie pop songs with ukuleles, cheap keyboards and kazoos.
Give me a few years to learn Norwegian and I’ll get back to you.
