Ukulele Kitchen Party


Well, while I'm on a King David excursion, here's an interesting fellow that recently popped on the Station. From what I gather, Yalego is a performance artist(e) who intends to perform a series of house concerts--from the kitchen. He has a wonderfully relaxed style, great strumming, and the beret ain't bad. (Wonder what Craig Robertson would look like in one...)

Would one of our Francophile Friends kindly leave a comment telling us more about Yalego? Merci. Link

Yalego played a kitchen party for me in Manhattan a couple months ago. As a result, I invited him to perform at NY Uke Fest, where he was a smash hit. His mouth trumpet is amazing beyond amazing. The first time I heard it, my jaw dropped. He achieves an effect of a muted trumpet. There are vids of him at NY Uke Fest 2007 and elsewhere on YouTube.

Yann's beret rest atop his shaved head. Works well, looks great. I still prefer a fedora.

next you'll be asking me to play a banjo ukulele....
