Most folks probably have a narrow view of the ukulele, which was developed in Hawaii and is most often associated with those islands’ music. But a British group is bringing the ukulele’s sound to a wider audience. The Ukulele Orchestra performs at well attended concerts which display the ukulele’s ability to interpret your favorite music of any genre. Except Hawaiian music…
One of my favorite movie themes is from the classic “spaghetti” western “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
Their presentation can be very…flowery.
They do disco..but don’t freak out!
And jazzy punk rock.
Watch out for “psycho” ukulele players David Byrne!
A ukulele orchestra? Mama Mia!
Many more Ukulele Orchestra clips can be found at Youtube.
