Carol Ruff / Gallery East. 21 Burnie Street. Clovelly NSW Australia 2031:

Do you like ukulele music. Enjoy this video. Jake Shimabukuro strums monster sounds out of the tiny Hawaiian ukelele, as he plays a cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” A sensational performance!  It’ll send shivers down your spine.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

The ukulele originated in the 19th century. It’s a small guitar related to the cavaquinho, braguinha and the rajao, taken to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants. During the early 20 century started to be popular in the United States, and from here spread worldwide.
