Ukulele Stories from Berlin

My three trips to Berlin (May and October 2011, September 2012) inspired me to write a collection of ukulele songs about that amazing city of Berlin. I stayed in the cool Kreuzberg sector and I hung around some of my German ukulele playing friends. I went to Berlin three times to explore the city and that still was not enough. These songs are about the interesting things I saw. Stay tuned for the videos as I finish them.

Postcards from Lille

I travelled to Northern France back in 2008 and 2011. I wrote some ukulele songs about my travels. These videos are in my early days of ukulele playing and video editing so they are more raw.
