NEIDERLANT OU NEIDERLANT, is a series of videos which are karaoke interpretations of Dutch songs, transcribed and sung by non native speakers according to the phonetics of their native tongue.
In NEIDERLANT OU NEIDERLANT, Davide Tidoni asked non-native Dutch residents to sing
karaoke interpretations of popular Dutch songs. The songs have also been transcribed by the singers according to the (arbitrary) phonetics of their native tongue, highlighting the difficulties in becoming familiar with the sounds of a new language.
