A brief background on ukulele for those in San Ramon who are not familiar with this musical instrument. Like guitar, the ukulele is a string instrument originating in Portugal. It has a small guitar-shaped body and is fitted with four strings. Plucking and strumming these four strings produces the sound. The strings in turn vibrate and are amplified by the resonating body. This musical instrument is manufactured in a similar fashion as a full size guitar.
The ukulele’s formation was mostly influenced by instruments from Spain, South America, and Africa. With introduction of six string instruments during the seventeenth century, the popularity of these instruments was high among music lovers. Although ukuleles are most commonly associated with Hawaii, it was not until 1879 that the first ukulele was brought over from Portugal. Immigrants from the island of Madeira first brought to Hawaii a pair of Portuguese instruments in the late 1870s from which the ukulele was eventually developed.
The ukulele is a globally popular instrument and a great way to enjoy music together anywhere, anytime. For its dainty size, the ukulele can make a powerfully cheerful sound, and it’s an instrument both beginners and expert players can learn and easily carry around.
