Ellen Cogen: Music

Youkali

(Ellen Cogen, voice and cello; John Mason, guitar)
September 5, 2011
Kurt Weill, arr. John Mason and Ellen Cogen
Youkali is a song about a little utopian island "near the end of the world". It is the land of our desires, it is happiness and pleasure, the land where there are no worries or cares. There, all your wishes will come true and you will be reunited with all your lost loves. But - it is only a dream, a folly - there is no Youkali.
