FREE SHIPPING FROM UKULELES TO ALL MEXICO
Aloha, my name is Luis Ildefonso, I'm from Culiacán, Sinaloa, and here is my short story of how Uku changed my life ...
Before I met him, I was more of a guitarist: playing there and playing here.
I played around my city in many places: in bars, restaurants, parties and even on public transport. My guitar became my good ally. Suddenly, a friend of mine came to a meeting with a ukulele and I was very curious and sympathetic the instrument, with a very soft and pleasant sound, comfortable to hold. For practical reasons, I changed the guitar for the Ukulele to play in the street, it was more comfortable and it sounded beautiful too.
When he woke up in the morning, the first thing he did was pick up the ukulele and play. During the afternoons he always did too. At dusk and when I went to bed, I would take it to bed and play and play… When I got sleepy I would place it on a small table in the corner; when sleeping was difficult for me, I would grab it again so that its sound would relax me (I still do). The Ukulele had already enchanted me.
My city, as beautiful as it is, full of magical places, friendly and quality people, delicious food, also has its dark side. Unfortunately a lot of violence. That never went unnoticed, and it really saddened me that, with so many positive things and so much virtue on this earth, violence was marking us as human beings, and worse still, that it was reaching children and young people.
the new generations needed something to focus their attention on, something to put their energy and time on. Something that would make them grow, imagine, that set their creativity soaring, that transformed them positively. And what better than the instrument that had already caused all of the aforementioned in me: the great Uku.
So I decided to create a project: “Ukulele Orchestras”. I presented it in an educational institution, they accepted it, and the path of guiding the new generations through music with the Ukulele had begun.
The purpose has always been that, through the Ukulele and its music, children grow up knowing that they are capable of creating something of value, of learning and knowing themselves more, of strengthening their confidence and that they recognize the value that the Ukulele has. contribute something positive to society, both for them in their growth, and for their environment.
The Ukulele transformed my life. Today I am the founder of “Keiki Pono”, a Ukulele school for girls, youth and adults. I feel happy teaching and transmitting my love for Uke, sharing music and experiences with people from many parts of Mexico and even from other countries. Glad to know that people do find medicine in the Ukulele, and it even serves as therapy. That boys and girls find in him a companion, a tool, fun, sensitivity, learning and growth. Pure health and life. The Ukulele does transform for the better whoever gives it a chance. MAHALO!
