For me ukulele means freedom, humor, and laughs. The sound reminds you not to take life too seriously. While strolling with my little daughter and listening to my vintage MP3 I discovered the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. A live album full of jokes and uplifting music. Masterfully arranged cover versions of iconic songs and instrumental like: Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf, famous movie themes, a mind blowing combination of Life On Mars and My Way.
My daughter is very sensitive to attention. When we start our walk I must make her sure I’m watching and listening to her. Sometimes she needs to hear my voice, repeating a mantra like “Tigi-digi-dam” or “i-love-u”. After she calms down and falls asleep I can put on earphones and listen to music. God forbid if she sees the earphones on me when she’s still awake.
