SeesoNarciso “Seeso” Lobo
He is a craftsman songwriter and infectious performer, bursting with earnestness, humor, and heart. Fueled by a love of story and character, his songs are tactile and immediate, able to coax the listener from laughter to tears and back again with each passing rhyme.

Seeso had almost given up on music, having played every Chicago dive bar in half a dozen bands. After the loss of his girl and his guitar, he happened upon a humble ukulele in Chicago’s legendary Old Town School of Folk Music and bought it on the spot—it just felt right. Wanting to share this newfound joy with the world, Seeso began to upload ukulele videos online. Before he knew it, “Thank You for Leaving Me (When I was Down)” became the first original ukulele song to be featured on the front page of YouTube and has since garnered over 1.3 million views.
The ukulele had saved his musical life. Today, Seeso is a generous and lively “human jukebox” jam leader and featured performer/instructor in ukulele festivals across the country. His unconventional “Pop Rocks” (pop, R&B, and hip-hop rhythm) workshops have been enthusiastically welcomed. He is an unofficial leader of the online ukulele community and a member of the ukuleleunderground.com team.


Shruti Nadis

ShrutiNadisBioMusic from the heart. We follow our paths by listening to each other as we throw melody’s to each other to chase. This journey started by a chance viewing of a street busker in Belgium while we were on tour with the Flea Bitten Dawgs. We heard this man playing a Shruti Box. The sound haunted Thom till we returned stateside and he could find one. With both Lee and Thom having a strong foundation in improvisational music helped us find our musical path. The results are Shruti Nadis! Our main focus is doing music for yoga sessions, meditation, and ecstatic dance. The instruments we use are, shruti box, ukulele, dulcimer, bells, hand percussion, overtone singing, chanting, djemba, tri-bongo’s, cymbal, agogo’s, cowbells, and many other rhythm instruments.

The ukulele brings together his two passions, the love of people and the love of music. For the past 3 years he has brought his joy of teaching and arranging music to hundreds of beginners.Pete utilizes group singalongs to encourage and motivate players to have the self confidence to be themselves and to play in public.
