Nico’o comes From the Basque region of France and discovered the ukulele on a trip to Tahiti in 2000. Instantly enchanted by its sound, it wasn’t long before he posted his unique uke rendition of Stairway to Heaven on the internet and started getting noticed. Invitations to play at festivals around the world began to arrive, first New York and then Hawaii, where he was the first European to be invited to play at the Honolulu Festival. He’s since visited Japan, Australia and Finland, meeting great critical acclaim wherever he goes.

Together with the Kapiolani Boyz, he creates magical Hawaiian sounds, combining folk, reggae and jazz manouche in a sumptuous blend which will charm your senses. Get ready to be charmed…
