I wasn't sure where to post this so I went with Uke Talk. This is a video that shows the local ukulele circle which I go to every month in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It's our take on the joy of spreading the ukulele. I'm sharing this here as a way of saying Aloha from the corner of the world where I live.

Thanks! I'm not the director of this video. I'm just one of the ukulele players that he interviewed. I just wanted to share his great work and also the wonderful work of Ralph Shaw, the founder of our group.

Looks fun. I'm going to try to go this month, for the first time--I just need to convince a friend to come along.

Oh, and I see that there's a baby who has joined the circle, and is already up on stage!

That's awesome! Please let me know if you're coming and I'll keep an eye out for you. :) Oh, and yes, we start them young at VUC. ;)

Nice video! Thanks for sharing, Ronin. As much as I enjoy our local group, it pales next to yours....

That was a great documentary. Thanks so much for sharing it! I don't get to attend our little monthly uke group very much. We are lucky to get 10 people! What fun!

When Ralph started the group, there were only 10 people. It's really grown! It's too big for one meeting place. We have offshoot groups and alternative meeting nights now.
