Klingalong: The Sci Fi and Fantasy Singalong


not yap wa’ Hol! (one language is never enough!)

 

Klingalong: The Sci Fi and Fantasy Singalong may be this galaxy’s first-ever singalong event in fictional languages, and certainly the first one to be accompanied only by an accordion. Sing pop classics by Split Enz, Queen, Dolly Parton, Ginuwine, the Pixies, Lauryn Hill, and more, translated into Klingon (Star Trek), Quenya (Lord of the Rings), and Dothraki (Game of Thrones) by your host, singer / accordionist and Master of Linguistics Emma Wollum.. Fresh as warm gagh, bold as the Vezhof, and as ambitious as finding Valimar, Klingalong is a truly unusual and genre-defying comedy experience that must be seen to be believed.
