    You may have to listen to this song a couple of times to understand it all, because the musici sing english with an exaggerated Dutch accent. To further make it challenging, they pronounce some Friesian words with a supposed english-speakers accent.

    For clarity, I can tell you that not all Friesians act and dress like the mob making the music.

    I do like the text though. Hope you like it.
    Fryslân boppe!

    p.s. If you have trouble understanding the song it has Friesian subtitles:D
    p.p.s. My Bride said that she wishes that they had Friesian. And english subtitles.

    Thanks @Sjoerd for an interesting video.


    There's SO MUCH that I don't know :setc_019:. I had to look up the geography and history of Friesia. It was also interesting to read that along with Angles and Saxons, there was a bit if a Friesian migration to what is now England. Of course, there were also Romans, Danes, Norse, Norman and all of the Celts I suppose.

    The music was a bit wild for me, but it was fun learning. Thanks :smt035!

    Great.

    I’m glad you sorta liked the vid. Not my sort of music either but Like I said, I liked the text. Haha. My forefathers on one side of my family were Friesians so I check things out there from time to time.
