The official song of the Women’s World Floorball Championships 2019, Tshak Tshak, is the work of local artist David Charles, better known as MC Roger. MC Roger, the citizen of Neuchâtel, was inspired by the song “Djadja” by Aya Nakamura.
The number one French hit “Djadja” by Aya Nakamura is also very well known in the Romandie, the French-speaking region of Switzerland. Reason enough for David Charles to use the song for the World Floorball Championships 2019. The 38-year old citizen of Neuchâtel is well known for his parodies in Western Switzerland.

WFC Song to set a great mood in Neuchâtel
The entire parody developed very quickly from the initial idea. The text tells of how he catches the floorball virus and how he can hardly wait until the World Floorball Championships get started. This thrill of anticipation is meant to be passed on to everyone who hears the song. Primarily people from the Romandie will be made aware of the major event that will be taking place in their area.
David Charles worked together with the women floorballers of UHC Yverdon for the shots in the video clips.
– I can already now imagine how the players will be dancing to my song at the WFC, MC Roger says.
But he remains realistic:
– You should never expect anything from music. You just have to perform it with lots of love and lots of passion, and the rest happens all by itself.
David Charles will perform the WFC song live at the Patinoires du Littoral rink at the opening ceremony on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 14:45, prior to Switzerland’s match against Germany.
