A Big One
A piece for ukulele in fifths (CGDA) which reflects the profound impact of some bitter news. A farewell to A Big One.
Works premiered by other ukulele players
In recent times I’ve written ukulele pieces that I’ve dedicated to, written for, or offered to ukulele players that I admire and have been gently premiered by them. Here is a growing list of such works.
Santa Orosia is a suite of short pieces for fifths tuned ukulele written by Choan Gálvez, inspired by traditional melodies from Yebra de Basa in Spain.
A compilation of short pieces for baritone ukulele written by Choan Gálvez. Aimed at intermediate fingerpickers.
To Those Who Love
An original for solo ukulele written by Choan Gálvez. Born of love, to those who love.
Tenacity and resilience were required. Uncertainty, failure and small victories were part of the path.
Minimalism, thrash metal and ukulele, at last together.
A new piece, laying somewhere between romanticism and minimalism.
What did Choan do in 2021?
A few gigs (live and online), a bunch of publications, lots of videos, a few exceptional collaborators and the luck of having patrons and students that are worth a fortune.
Minimalism and minor triads are back.
