The Unstoppable Rise of the Uke
7 August 2013 | by mountaingoat100See all my reviews

Wonderfully entertaining picture, this roams across the world to show the enduring attraction of this simple instrument. All ages seem to take to it {I have a friend who just took to it after his retirement} and the experts expound on how easy it is make sweet sounds. The history of the uke is given, showing it's huge popularity in the Roaring 20s, before it faded to become something of a joke. But there were enough diehards determined to make sure the legacy continued. The best sequences show a Canadian school that teaches the instrument and sends it's best students to the true home of the uke, Hawaii, every year for a concert. This is inspiring stuff, never taking itself too serious. It'll put a smile on your face/
