||Other Odds and Ends||
This webpage has been set-up to cover all those songs and choral items sung in languages not dealt with on the other folk music pages in this domain. An example of which is the mis-classified Cameroon song Bele Mama He!
that I learned in Germany and widely sung by choirs and groups globally. Well, Bele Mama He
has found a new home on this page.
Then there is the conundrum of songs written in English, for example, by a German songwriter. Is it English or German? Here I have determined that such a song such as Lemon Tree
should be described on the German webpage crediting the songwriter. As a choir singer in Germany and the UK I have sung in Latin, Spanish, Portuguese and other languages, these item too are given here.
Finally, as a widely traveled folk singer, I have generously been given songs in Sweden, Poland and Japan - it would be churlish not to include them here also.
