The múHawaiian traditional music is based úonly in cánudity and rudimentary percussion, which are used to accompany the dances like the hula.
So specifically the ukulele does not have its native origin in Hawaii. ):
THOUGH do not get scared...
The Ukulele was born in Hawaii although the origin is Portuguese, thanks to cavaquinho.
You didn't know that the Ukulele is practically the son of the cavaquinho.
It is an instrument from Bytugal That is there in Las Europas, hehehe.
It is an OBVIOUSly hitting instrument similar to the Ukulele.
Just as cheerful but with the different tuning that is:
Cavaquinho: 1-d 2-B 3-G 4-D
Ukulele: 1-A 2-E 3-C 4-G
And so you know a little more ...
It tells the story that at the end of the 19th century, from the Portuguese island of Madeira, the British ship SS Ravenscrag sailed loaded with 423 crew, most destined to work in the sugar cane plantations. The Ravenscrag, after a four-month trip, arrived at the port of Honolulu on the island of O'ahu on August 23 of 1879.
Upon arriving in Honolulu, João Fernandes takes his cavaquinho and plays a song with him, captivating the locals with his sound.
The natives called it Ukulele which literally means "Jumping flea" Uku is a flea in Hawaiian, and Lele means, well ... jump, hehe.
At a party held on the British yacht Nyanza in the port of Honolulu.
VERY, very, very, very, very mm, probably the first Ukulele was made with the native wood that is this case as we said it is the KOA.
So when you have the opportunity to play a Koa Ukulele, feel very LUCKY to have the Hawaiian Ukulele, despite your weight, we know that if you were born in Hawaii. : D
There are some artists who actually use this type of Ukuleles.
Vance Joy, Twenty One Plitos etc ...
