I just came across and downloaded an album by a Norewegian trad group, Bukkene Bruse. I really like the album, but I'm wondering about the correct way to pronounce their name. Can anyone help?

Ah ! An old mate, Stienar Offsdal of mine plays best flute and whistles in that group. They ahve won the Norwegian Spelmans prize At least once.
When I first met stienar he played in a group in '68 called the, "young Norwegians". He's over 50 now.

Their
website
is here

English phonetic pronunciation is "Booking a bruiser" ie booking a boxer.

Translation is "The bucking goat". And I mean bucking not f**king. Or do I?

Good group enjoy

Chas

Thanks Chas! I wasn't even sure how many syllables the first word had. I'm glad to have a pronunciation here, and the additional information as well.

The album I got is just titled after the group. I've played it several times already, and plan to get more of their albums. You have good taste in friends! (and music.)

How do you pronounce it?

The nearest I can come without phonetics is bookena brusa. The u in brusa is short as in 'put'

Here's the blue clicky, open mike:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burkina_Faso

And, since other people may be curious about the meaning of that African nation's name {as I was}, here's the etymology of that name:

"Burkina Faso, also known by its short-form name Burkina, is a landlocked nation in West Africa. It is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north, Niger to the east, Benin to the south east, Togo and Ghana to the south, and Côte d'Ivoire to the south west. Formerly called the Republic of Upper Volta, it was renamed on August 4, 1984, by President Thomas Sankara to mean "the land of upright people" in Moré and Dioula, the major native languages of the country. Literally, "Burkina" may be translated, "men of integrity," from the Moré language, and "Faso" means "father's house" in Dioula. Independence from France came in 1960"

Here's a link to a sound clip of Bukkene Bruse:

This sound clip is on YouTube, but-unlike most YouTube clips-it has no video.
