The Ukulele, or Uke for short, is a four string, six string, or eight
string instrument. It is originally from Portugal. The Hawaiians
named the instrument the Ukulele, meaning Jumping Fleas when
they saw the rapid movement of the Portuguese musicians.
Hawaiians adopted the instrument and it is a part of the local
culture. For years, local people have been playing the ukulele as
accompaniment or solo instruments. It is common to hear families
at night singing to one in their backyard or to see kids walking
around with them at school.
The Ukulele comes in diferent sizes. The soprano, concert, tenor,
and baritone are most common. Tenor size ukes can be found
with six or eight strings. The four-string ukes are tuned in
G-C-E-A. Families and friend "Kanikapila," or play music at
gatherings and parties.
