Gypsy Ukulele Aficionado Found in Paris

Mathias Ceve Youtube


In Paris,  we discovered you can find ukulele cafes and festivals galore. What do you think when you hear Ukulele Bodouir or Ukulele Syndicate? Well, today we hear from a French musician, Mathias Ceve, who got bit bad, by not just the ukulele bug, but Gypsy jazz-- Parisian jazz-- a sound developed by Django Reinhardt in the 30’s.
