Otago (/əˈtɑːɡoʊ/ (About this soundlisten), /oʊ-, ɒ-/) is a region of New Zealand in the south of the South Island administered by the Otago Regional Council. It has an area of approximately 32,000 square kilometres (12,000 sq mi), making it the country’s third largest local government region. Its population was 229,200 in June 2018.IMG_7106The name “Otago” is an old Māori southern dialect word (the North Island dialect equivalent is “Otakou”), introduced to the south by Europeans in the 1840s.  The exact meaning of the term is disputed, with common translations being “isolated village” and “place of red earth”, the latter referring to the reddish-ochre clay which is common in the area around Dunedin. “Otago” is also the old name of the European settlement on the Otago Harbour, established by the Weller Brothers in 1831, which lies close to the modern harbourside community of Otakou. The place later became the focus of the Otago Association, an offshoot of the Free Church of Scotland, notable for its high-minded adoption of the principle that ordinary people, not the landowner, should choose the ministers.IMG_7095.JPGMajor centres include Dunedin (the principal city), Oamaru (made famous by Janet Frame), Balclutha, Alexandra, and the major tourist centres Queenstown and Wanaka. Kaitangata in South Otago is a prominent source of coal. The Waitaki and Clutha rivers provide much of the country’s hydroelectric power. Some parts of the area originally covered by Otago Province are now administered by either Canterbury Regional Council or Southland Regional Council.IMG_7609.JPGThe Central Otago wine region produces award-winning wines made from varieties such as the Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Merlot and Riesling grapes. It has an increasing reputation as New Zealand’s leading Pinot noir region.


Gore (Māori: Maruawai) is a town and district in the Southland region of the South Island of New Zealand. IMG_7203The town of Gore is 64 kilometres northeast of Invercargill and 70 km west of Balclutha – Dunedin and Invercargill are the nearest cities. The Gore District has a resident population of 12,500 (June 2018). The urban area estimated resident population at the June 2018 was 9,910, the second largest in Southland. Gore is a service town for the surrounding farm communities.

Dunedin (/dʌˈniːdɪn/ (About this soundlisten) duh-NEE-din; Māori: Ōtepoti) is the second-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the principal city of the Otago region. Its name comes from Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.IMG_7406The urban area of Dunedin city lies on the central-eastern coast of Otago, surrounding the head of Otago Harbour, and the harbour and hills around Dunedin are the remnants of an extinct volcano. The city suburbs extend out into the surrounding valleys and hills, onto the isthmus of the Otago Peninsula, and along the shores of the Otago Harbour and the Pacific Ocean. Dunedin was the largest New Zealand city by territorial land area until superseded by Auckland with the formation of the Auckland Council in November 2010.IMG_7107.JPGArchaeological evidence points to lengthy occupation of the area by Māori prior to the arrival of Europeans. The province and region of Otago takes its name from the Ngai Tahu village of Otakou at the mouth of the harbour, which became a whaling station in the 1830s.IMG_7418.JPGIn 1848 a Scottish settlement was established by the Lay Association of the Free Church of Scotland. Between 1855 and 1900 many thousands of Scots emigrated to the incorporated city. Dunedin became wealthy during the Central Otago Gold Rush, beginning in the 1860s. In the mid-1860s, and between 1878 and 1881, it was New Zealand’s largest urban area. The city population at 5 March 2013 was 120,246.[10] While Tauranga, Napier-Hastings and Hamilton have eclipsed the city in size of population since the 1980s to make it only the seventh-largest urban area in New Zealand, Dunedin is still considered one of the four main cities of New Zealand for historic, cultural and geographic reasons.


Christchurch (/ˈkrsɜːr/MāoriŌtautahi) is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand and the seat of the Canterbury Region. The Christchurch urban area lies on the South Island’s east coast, just north of Banks Peninsula. It is home to 404,500 residents, making it New Zealand’s third-most populous citybehind Auckland and Wellington.IMG_7738The Avon River flows through the centre of the city, with an urban park located along its banks. At the request of the Deans brothers—whose farm was the earliest settlement in the area—the river was named after the River Avon in Scotland, which rises in the Ayrshire hills near to where their grandfather’s farm was located.IMG_7847.JPGArchaeological evidence has indicated that the Christchurch area was first settled by humans in about 1250. Christchurch became a city by Royal Charter on 31 July 1856, making it officially the oldest established city in New Zealand. The Canterbury Association, which settled the Canterbury Plains, named the city after Christ Church, Oxford. The new settlement was laid out in a grid pattern centred on Cathedral Square; during the 19th century there were few barriers to the rapid growth of the urban area, except for the Pacific to the east and the Port Hills to the south.IMG_7758.JPGAgriculture is the historic mainstay of Christchurch’s economy. The early presence of the University of Canterbury and the heritage of the city’s academic institutions in association with local businesses has fostered a number of technology-based industries.IMG_7655.JPGThe city suffered a series of earthquakes between September 2010 and early 2012, with the most destructive of them occurring at 12.51 p.m. on Tuesday, 22 February 2011, in which 185 people were killed and thousands of buildings across the city collapsed or suffered severe damage. By late 2013, 1,500 buildings in the city had been demolished, leading to an ongoing recovery and rebuilding project.

The exact spot of Emperor Jimmu’s descent to earth was debated for centuries until in 1863 an area that is now part of the city was claimed to be the exact location. The city was the location of the Imperial capital Fujiwara-kyō, from 694 to 710. In the late 16th century it was said to be one of the two richest autonomous cities of Japan, as in Umi no Sakai, Riku no Imai (tr. “by the sea, Sakai – inland, Imai” – Imai or ja:今井町 now being a part of Kashihara).

I will meet everyone next year ~ !!!




On 8 August 2018, for the anniversary of the 5th of the World Yodel Day, a new character is born.

37319911_10156570310564413_264692611044868096_nA new Dutch character  for the World Yodel Day is born, named ‘Ger’. It’s easy to pronounce as a [Gær] but you have to read it as ‘ [Hær]’, because he is from the Netherlands.

According to the original author, ‘Ger[Hær]’ is a typical Dutch name with a somewhat neutral feel.

What does ‘Ger’ have in his hand?

According to Daniel Hentschel, creator of  this new character,  the object which in the hand of ‘Ger’ is the Jew’s Harp.

This named, Khomus, traditional musical instrument of the Mongolian Throat-singing.

Daniel Hentschel was first touched on the Khoomei, oriental music and then rediscovered the Alpin “Yodel”, which is the music of their real ancestors!  In addition, he discovered more primitive yodels such as Juzz of the Muotathal, becomes aware of the appearance of Yodel as a common music of all humankind.

To him, Jew’s Harp is the most basic human musical instrument that can connect all mankind. In fact, this instrument is also called the first musical instrument of mankind, and it is also a basic instrument called 50 different names in various regions around the world. In addition, it is a musical instrument that is often recalled not only by traditional performances but also by blues, techno, or other avant-garde contemporary music.

Daniel Hentschel says:

“I think this instrument will be able to connect many people because it is the common root of all of us.”

What is this light coming out of Ger’s mouth?

This is a ‘rainbow’ that comes out of Ger’s mouth. The rainbow is a visual representation of the auditory yodelings.

A rainbow is a spectral phenomenon in which a large number of water droplets floating in the air are scattered by the prism action of the water drop itself when refraction on light.

Our yodeling , relatively severe “break” music will cause a lot of spectral phenomena. It is not just visualized by our human senses, but other creatures may be able to see it 🙂

There is also the famous ‘Rainbow Promise’ in the Bible. God tells the creatures that have survived the Flood: “I will make a promise with you, and I will never again destroy all living creatures by the flood. There will never again be a flood to sink the earth. ” And it is the rainbow that has risen to heaven as a token.

Did the survivors started yodeling to express gratitude for the rainbow they met for the first time? Maybe are we yodeling to make rainbows?

The ‘rainbow’ as a visual expression of Yodel seems so scientific and humane! I pay homage to Daniel Hentschel’s intuition ^^

What is the most universal rainbow?

Commonly known to us the colors of the rainbow are seven: red, green, blue, green, and purple. In fact, the first time this design was the common seven rainbow colors.


By the way, Do you know who first classified the 7 colors of the rainbow?

Isaac Newton did it!  He distinguished it according to the musical scale of 7 degrees.

In fact, the rainbow has different color criteria according to cultural areas. There are cultural areas that divide into six or five colors, or even a culture that divides into three colors. In other words, the rainbow is perceived differently by different cultures.

From here, we have to worry about the most common rainbow color that will symbolize the sound of yodels for all of us. In fact, the seven colors rainbow are so common. If some people did not consider it a rainbow, we thought it would be more universal to consider the position of those people.

So the choice is the traditional Asian five colors, and traditionally, Asia has divided the rainbow into these five colors.


Through this fairly complicated discussion we made a new Dutch character for Yodel Day.

All of us yodelers were the people who made this mysterious rainbow sound!!

In retrospect, it is not wrong. Remember the amazing facial expressions of those who first heard this weird sound!


I look forward to the day when Ger will yodeling and look forward to the visual imagination of yodel while watching the beautiful rainbow coming out of Ger’s mouth every time Ger will yodeling. FIN.

Today is the 5th World Yodel Day.


Finally, Today is the 5th World Yodel Day.

Wow! Today is such a special day!

In celebration of the World Yodel Day, a lot of people from more than 30 countries around the world screamed ‘World Yodel Day’.

我想不迷惘就不迷惘 I’m not lost and I’m surely not.
还有什么比这让人更膨胀 What else can make people’s ego more boost?


我要坐在山顶上 I want to sit on the mountain top,
听风儿歌唱 listening to the wind singing.
When the cloud departs, and the suns arrives, the first beam of the sun shines on my face.

我要独自去流浪 I’m going stray alone,
走路去远方 walk to somewhere far.
走不动了我一点都不慌张 When I get too tired to walk, I will not panic.

我想任性我就任性 I want to do whatever I want to do;
我想倔强我也能倔强 I want to be tough and I can be tough.
看你们谁能把我怎么样 See what you can do to me.

我想不彷徨就不彷徨 I don’t want to wander, and I surely don’t ;
我想不迷惘就不迷惘 I’m not lost and I’m surely not.
还有什么比这让人更膨胀 What else can make people’s ego more boost?

Lu Tong tells me , this is a comic movie in which a poor person suddenly gets rich.

Oh! This movie is in 1st place in Chinese box office of August 1, 2018 !!


I hope this movie is well informed so that Yodel can be informed more widely in China!

Finally Yodel appeared in Chinese movie!!  that’s great!


Pet Panomrungเพชร พนมรุ้ง,King of the Cowboy Song of Thailandราชาเพลงโห่คาวบอยของเมืองไทย, passed away 12 June 2018.

Now, There are a lot of country singers in Thailand mourn him.


A lot of country fan and singers in Thailand prayed for his recovery and performed a concert for his hospital expenses, although he passed away on June 12 at 4:15 pm. I could hear the news through my Thai friends.



Perhaps he is not familiar with yodelers around the world.  But he is probably the first yodeler in Thailand. In fact, I have been to Thailand to see him in May of this year. But I could not meet him because suddenly he was sick.

I do not know him well.  So I do not know if I can tell his death to yodelers around the world.  Anyway I have at least some obligation to inform yodelers around me that this great yodeler was in Thailand. He has left, but his yodel will be eternal.
