Who knew Vanuatu was such a party country?

You’re forgiven if you’ve never heard of Vanuatu. It’s an island nation in the South Pacific with barely 200,000 citizens. On the list of “Fun Things to Do In Vanuatu,” #1 is probably something like, “Go to New Zealand for the weekend.”

It turned out that has a tidy little entry about it. The part that caught my eye was the name of their national anthem: “Yumi, Yumi, Yumi.” I’m not sure of the translation of the word; all I can do is offer the following, which should probably carry a title something like “The Vanuatu National Men’s Choir Singing Our Glorious National Anthem.”
