Sami, Frisian and Udmurt – the obscure languages of Europe compete in song contest: the “Liet International Song Contest” was staged ths Saturday night, open only to entries performing in European based dialects which few people understand.

Organisers claim that the contest “promotes tolerance, multilingualism, friendships and combats racism and eventual risks of ethnic conflicts.”

Janna Eijer, the Friesian singer, won the show. Hope you enjoy her performance!
