taking our culture forward

Hop-tu-naa is the traditional celebration on the Isle of Man for the 31st of October, and it has a number of traditional and popular songs connected to it.

We asked Biskee Brisht to give a modern twist to an ancient Manx song which has been sung on the Isle of Man for centuries...

Ta shenn oie Houney, hop-tu-naa,
T'an eayst soilshean, trol-la-laa!
This is Hollantide night, hop-tu-naa!
The moon shines bright, trol-la-laa!
