A lot of people do not realize it but the ukulele is actually a variation of a Portuguese instrument called Braguinha. This is an instrument created by Manuel Nunes and soon after, the people of Hawaii started to love and play this little instrument. A lot of people like the fact that it only has four strings which makes it easier to play as compared to the other string instruments.

The word ukulele may have come from some Hawaiian words that mean “jumping flea.” It is in the year 1915 when ukulele was first introduced to the USA. It started to become more popular in other parts of the world soon after.
