It sure does and while we cannot bring you to Hawaii, we can definitely bring you the magical sounds from the land of Mahalo!
A family of the Lute family, it originated as the Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete in the 19th century,ukulele’s appeal has reached far and wide across the seas from its humble beginnings. It’s the last Hawaii monarch, Queen Lili’uokalani who aptly called it “the gift that came here” based on the Hawaiian words “uku” (gift) and “lele” (to come).
Small as it is, the ukulele’s portability and simple versatility is the reason for its popularity in major countries like Japan, the US and the UK. Spawning artistes like Eddie Vedder and Isreal Kamakawiwo’ole who, with their honest to goodness music, haunting vocals and melodies, have swept many a nation (including Singapore) into an Uku-frenzy.
