Concertina Sighting-Russian Annimation

Recommended Posts

Discovered these delightful Russian animations featuring a concertina-playing crocodile. There are a series of them at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUBNtYixTSs&feature=youtu.be.


Edited to change "alligator" to "crocodile" (although I think it might use both).

Well, I'd not say this is concertina - buttons seem to be positioned as on an accordion.

And he doesn't sing "I'm playing a concertina". He sings about "гармошка", which translates as, probably, "harmonica". This term is usually used for Russian button accordions.

Sorry to disappoint.


It's a great kid's animation, though, and book on which it's based is very good as well.
