Ukulele, the typical instrument of Hawaii, is a direct descendant of Rajão, our most representative instrument of Madeira Island.

During the XIX century the portuguese took the Rajão to Hawaii, which later became the Ukulele (the word means “jumping flea” in the native language of the island).

Typically built in koa, a native wood from Hawaii, the Ukulele is a phenomenon of popularity around the world. Its most popular sizes are: soprano, concert, tenor and baritone.

In its different configurations of construction, these are the most popular:

Top: Koa

Sidesand back: Koa

Neck:  Koa

Fretboard: Rosewood
