Cho "Happy Bear"

It is time for another FOCUS. This time I am heading into Asia for the profilic YouTube poster unckc. His name is Cho and he plays the baritone ukulele primarily to traditional Korean folk music. I have collected (10) of Cho's videos to show a broad selection of his music. Also included is one soprano video because Cho sings in it.

I have been hearing a lot of news about the strength of Korea's economy and the extremely high dedication to education. Students are going to schools early in the mornings before their regular school classes in order to get a solid education in their competitive marketplace.

Cho is interested in Folk Music and plays guitar, ukulele, and baritone ukulele. He has a website, and it can be partially translated from Korean, I was able to infer what would get me into older posts. Here's the link. Or if you already understand Korean all the better. Korea appears to have an active ukulele scene.
