Beatles hits translated into Cornish

A band is translating four of the Beatles songs into Cornish.

Cornish, or Kernewek, is the sister language of Welsh and Breton and was formally recognised by the EU in 2002.

The band Skwardya, made up of members Matthew Clarke and Dave Miller, has recorded four songs including She Loves You (Hi a’th kar) and Something (Neppyth).

Only around 400 people are thought to speak fluent Cornish, reports BBC online.

Mr Clarke, from Camborne, said they were also planning to record two more.

He said: “We’re just trying to expand the amount of stuff in Cornish that’s out there. It’s good to have some other things rather than just folk songs and the odd hymn.”
