If you have studied French before, what are the main things you remember? Foux da fafa is by a group from New Zealand called Flight of the Conchords. The song is a parody on words and expressions that students typically learn in introductory French courses. As you listen, see how much of the song you are already able to understand.
Note: the members of this group are not native French speakers, so their grammar and pronunciation are not always correct!
Flight of the Conchords is a folk, pop, and comedy band that bills itself as "formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk comedy folk duo." The group uses a combination of witty observation, characterization, and acoustic guitars to wow its audience.
The duo's comedy and music became the basis of a BBC radio series and then, an American television series, which premiered in 2007 on HBO.
