Its distinct sound and accessible format has made the humble ukulele more popular than ever before!
The ukulele as we know it took shape in Hawaii, derived from an instrument called a machete that was passed on by Portuguese immigrants. It’s commonly found with four nylon strings and smaller body than the acoustic guitar.
That are four common varieties: soprano, concert, tenor and baritone. These vary in terms of size, scale length and tuning. Nowadays, some manufacturers even produce guitar-ukulele and bass-ukulele hybrids, designed to more accessible to contemporary players.
The ukulele can be heard in a number of musical styles, from traditional folk music to modern pop and everything in between.
