Unexpected Ukulele

Live concert by Choan Gálvez

Ukulele can play much more than happy music.

On Saturday, June, 5th, I’ll be streaming a live ukulele concert hosted on Bandcamp Live.

The programme for this session includes a few of my non-happy, absolutely non-danceable, unsoothing but beautiful in some manner, will-drive-you-to-tears compositions for solo ukulele—some of them to be premiered on this date. The selection of pieces includes also works by Giovanni Albini, Tony Mizen, Samantha Muir, Matthew Quilliam, and David John Roche.

Nobody expects the Spanish ukulele!

You’re welcome to interact through the chat, I’ll keep an eye on it between performances and stay for a while after the concert ends.
