Mouth Music, Part 2

Yesterday's video showed off a bit of lilting. Here is a Scottish style of mouth music, puirt a beul, which uses real, though usually nonsensical, words. It isn't a very clear video, but an interesting one as it shows puirt-a-beul in practical application. The dancer is Melody Cameron, and the singer Joe Murphy. The video was actually taken in Nova Scotia, where Gaelic musical traditions are still quite strong.
