This long-term collaborative project aims to combine art and music by bringing together San José-based artist Federico Herrero and Japanese ukulele player Kazuyuki Sekiguchi.

Designed by Herrero, the exhibition involves the participation of the public who have the opportunity to work with both artists.

There are ukulele-playing workshops every day, where visitors, whether experienced or not, can strum the instrument while meeting and making friends with other participants. Their performances will also be uploaded on YouTube for others to watch; till March 17 (2013).
