Sunday Fun: Pepe Romero and Ukulele Master Daniel Ho Play ‘Asturias’

Here’s a fun twist on an old favorite: Pepe Romero and Hawaiian ukulele master Daniel Ho play a unique version of Isaac Albéniz’s Asturias (also known as Leyenda, but originally the “Prelude” of the 1892 work Chants d’Espagne). Romero and Ho collaborated on the excellent 2016 album Aloha España, which included several duo tracks featuring added ukulele arrangements by Ho (including this piece), as well as solo selections by each. They have also performed together a few times (and will in the future, too). —Blair Jackson
