Jerriais bells

Do you know how Jèrriais sounds? And did you know they have carols in that language? Find out more on Eune Bordée d'Noué, a Christmas album sung in the language spoken on Channel Island Jersey.

From the bio: 'The album contains a selection of well-known Christmas classics, as well as a few lesser-known French and Jersey carols, sung entirely in the language of Jèrriais.
Badlabecques founder and lead singer Kit Ashton hopes people will really enjoy the album, which is entitled ‘Eune Bordée d'Noué!’ (meaning a Christmas party), and also at the same time perhaps reflect on the deeper significance of Christmas'.
