Developed in Hawaii in the late 19th century, the ukulele descended from small Portuguese guitars and was extremely popular until World War II. Experiencing a strong revival in the 1990s, the "uke" today is once again popular in the United States, and especially in Canada, where it has seen tremendous growth in schools. Today, its popularity is growing rapidly with a myriad of folk and traditional music ensembles. This small, four string instrument is easy to learn to play, suitable for ages 4 and up, and extremely affordable, promising fun for everyone!
