Well, the Dumbek fits the tune nicely. I would have used a more
interesting rhythm, though. Baladi, maybe switching off into Masmoodi.

I honestly thought that polka was an ITM tune which sounded Finnish,
but it seems to have Finnish lyrics, and is pretty popular on youtube...

Maybe one of you fine Europeans can tell me more about this tune/song.

I should have just googled it. Duh.

Interesting how such Internet phenomenon
can help otherwise obscure musicians.

For example, see Tunak Tunak Tun
