The ukulele is a small, four-stringed musical instrument that originated in Hawaii in the 19th century. It is similar to a guitar in many ways, but has a smaller size and a higher pitch. The ukulele is known for its bright, cheerful sound and is often associated with the laid-back, tropical culture of Hawaii. It is used in a wide range of musical styles, from traditional Hawaiian music to contemporary pop and folk.
