Ukulele Utopia

A Virtual Learning Experience

Contra

Horchata, California English, Cousins

Blending poignant, self-aware lyrics with a wonderful backdrop of lush melodies, poppy beats and synth beats, Vampire Weekend’s `Contra’ is one of the most impressive and enjoyable albums from the indie pop scene in the early 2010s.

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged. Like Vampire Weekends Debut album.
