Ukulele History

The ukulele (yoo-kuh-lay-lee; Hawaiian. oo-koo-lay-lay) has a long history spanning the globe. It got it’s start as the smaller cousin to the guitar and lute of Europe. From Portugal the uke traveled to Hawaii and was further developed where it became a favorite instrument to the Hawaiian Royal Family. In the 1920’s the music of the ukulele traveled to the mainland of the United States then all the way back to Europe where it became popular in music halls in the UK. After World War II, ukuleles were mass produced and were a big hit with kids and adults alike. Although the ukulele’s popularity faded during that last half of the 20th centure, it has seen a recent resurgence in popularity.
