The Ukulele revival has ushered in a new era of acceptance and respect of this instrument as a world stage leader. The ukulele is commonly associated with music from Hawaii which according to Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last Hawaiian monarch, means "the gift that came here", from the Hawaiian words uku (gift) and lele (to come). First developed in the late 1800s, the ukulele was based on several small guitar-like musical istruments of Portuguese origin to include the "machete" and the lesser known timple, rajao and cavaquinho. Ukuleles were later introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by Portuguese immigrants. Luna Guitars has modeled the inspiration behind our acoustic guitar line, and that result is the now world recognized Luna Ukulele.
