One of the most representative things about a culture is their instruments, and you can’t get much more “Hawaii” than an Ukulele. Although the 4 stringed instrument found in Ukulele stores around the world is deeply associated with Hawaiian culture, the insturment has a relatively modern origin. It’s said that the origin of the instrument is Portuguese immigrants, who brought their small guitars like the Cavaquinho to the islands in the late 1800s. King Kalakaua, being a patron of the arts, pushed for the instruments inclusion in royal music performances which led to wide spread adoption on the islands.
In recent years, Ukuleles have exploded in popularity around the world. The tropical tones, portability, and versatility make it a great choice for beginner musicians to veterans of other musical disciplines alike. As such, we know there’s a lot of you out there interested in Ukuleles. No better place to look for an authentic Ukulele purchase or experience than Hawaii, right?
