We recently featured “leek video” videos and had this song recommended to us. A pretty young Japanese girl is able to lip sync perfectly to the Finnish lyrics of the Leek song! Wow! Silly, cute and funny!
A while ago, this video became very popular on the internet and had many variations. It’s simply a girl in Japanese anime style spinning a leek (A small vegetable that resembles an onion). The music being played is a song by the (Swedish ) group Loituma, and you can see the actual translation and the group that performs in the next video.
Have you ever wondered what the words to the “leek video” are saying? Well, in this video you can actually see the group who performs the song and see a translation of the words into English. The song is performed by a group called Loituma who are a the quartet of singers from Finland and are singing here in Finnish. The group, Loituma were selected Ensemble of the Year at the 1997 Kaustinen Folk Music Festival.
