Lonely Birthday Video January Fifteenth
is a traditional classic from the constitutional monarchy of Tuvalu.
I found a birthday dance video from Tuvalu but not a birthday song
Tuvalu is an island nation in the South
Pacific. It is one of the smallest countries in the world, having a
population of a little more than eleven thousand people. Tuvalu's
total land area is a little more than ten square miles.
It is about 962 miles from
Vanuatu. Tuvalu is a neighbor to Kiribati, Nauru, Samoa, and Fiji.
Even though Tuvalu is a very small
country with a very small population, its musical and dance tradition
is very beautiful. I found a birthday dance but the video I have
added is irresistible, even though it is not a birthday song.
Once a person starts playing the video it has
almost a hypnotic effect on the person willing to experience it. You
can find this video in Youtube by searching for Tuvalu Part I. Of
course, you can find Tuvalu Part 2 and enjoy it too.
Tuvalu is very young, having received
its independence in 1978. Prior to independence it used to be called
Ellice Islands. Their capital city, Funafuti, has an airport. Their
official languages are English and Tuvaluan.
The highest elevation on Tuvalu is
about fifteen feet and the people of Tuvalu are concerned about rising sea levels.
If you ever go to a website which has a
domain name ending in .tv, know that Tuvalu leased its domain name
for 50 million dollars for twelve years. Currently, it may be getting
2.3 million dollars for leasing its top level domain name each year.
If you find a birthday greeting song in
Tuvaluan from the people of Tuvalu, please let me know at Lonely
