🏝️It paints that gorgeous Hawaiian picture of a blue ocean, swaying palm trees, and a colourful array of flowers that seem to be everywhere around the island. 🌸
🎸So today I am inspired by the ukulele or jumping flea as it is known in Hawaii. The small guitar-like instrument can be traced back to Portuguese sailors who brought a similar instrument the machete. However, the machete uses metal strings whereas the ukulele uses nylon.
🎵The ukulele became a fixture in Hawaiian music and culture when the last King of Hawaii, 👑King David Kalākaua (reigned 1874 – 1891) incorporated the instrument in royal ceremonies and Lūʻau (luaus)🎊
✨I was thrilled to find a ukulele to learn some basic chords, unfortunately, my instrument was missing a string. So maybe the sound wasn’t perfect, but I had fun nonetheless on my #armchairtravel adventure.🤩😂
