While I was growing up – don’t forget that I was born during the Ceausescu’s ruling (aka in communism) – we didn’t have many TV programs, but there were some with an interesting content. One of these shows was “Teleenciclopedia” (a TV encyclopedia show) presenting in small bites important and concise information in various fields – art, animals, biology, space, etc. I loved the fact that one hour a week I received information on various topics in a very attractive way (by the way, the show is still running!). In one of the editions of this TV show I found out about ukulele.
Yes, those “small guitars” like some people are calling them, the ukulele and their music are charming.
Nowadays, we have access to much more information, including on ukulele. So yes, when I had a moment one day I browsed the Internet to find out more about ukulele. I found out there is a museum dedicated to them, and that there is another museum, the Ukulele Hall of Fame Museum. Yes, two museums, different content (and perhaps there are more out there). Of course, for those interested in buying these music instruments, and going from admiring and finding out more about them to playing these instruments, you can simply look the item online and you will definitely find a ukulele shop for you.
I don’t recall exactly how I got to their website, but one day I found out about the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. This was something different than the music I listen or hear more usually, so I wanted to see how their music sounds. I entered YouTube and looked for videos with them and I liked what I saw and heard.
You probably guessed by now: the interesting idea for a night out in the UK would be to go to a concert of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. I would like that, would you?
