What We’re Watching: Honoka & Azita, Adele, and More

Over here at Ukulele magazine, part of the job is watching YouTube—in between producing a quarterly magazine (so please share cool videos with us when you find them: ukulele@stringletter.com).

In our new Spring 2016 issue, there’s an addition to the album reviews (pages 82-83) that highlights what we’re watching and listening to (submissions welcome: ukulele@stringletter.com).

Above, watch Honoka Katayama and Azita Ganjali—better known as Honoka & Azita—perform a killer cover of Ohta-San’s “Bodysurfing” on a gorgeous beach in their native Hawaii. Gonna be watching this all winter.


Did you catch Adele on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in November? No surprise, it’s great, and she performs “Hello” backed by only classroom instruments played by the Roots. Above, check out Roots’ guitarist “Captain” Kirk Douglas playing ukulele.

And, which you may have spotted on our Facebook page, this hilarious, BBC-produced video 100 Years of the Ukulele in 6 minutes.
