Detail

Ukulele initiated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian explanation of the machete, a small guitar-like instrument taken to Hawaii by Portuguese refugees. It achieved immense fame in the United States during the early 20th century, and from there expand globally.Ukuleles are usually linked with music from Hawaii where the name approximately interprets as "jumping flea", maybe because of the similarity of the player's finger actions to a "jumping flea". Developed in the 1880s, the ukulele is based on two small guitar-like instruments of Portuguese source, the cavaquinho and the rajao, launched to the Hawaiian Islands by Portuguese refugees from Madeira and Cape Verde. Three refugees specifically, Madeiran cabinet makers Manuel Nunes, José do Espírito Santo, and Augusto Dias, are usually accredited as the first ukulele producers. After Two weeks, they get off from the Ravenscrag in late August 1879, the Hawaiian Gazette reported that "Madeira Islanders newly reached here, have been pleasuring the people with nightly street shows."After the 1960s, the ukulele turned down in reputation until the late 1990s, when curiosity in the instrument restored. During the 1990s, new producers began producing ukuleles and a new generation of musicians took up the instrument.
