The ukulele emerged in the 19th century as a Hawaiian version of the Portuguese ’machete’. It was introduced to the islands in 1879 by settlers, and then modified to suit local tastes. A popular story tells that Indigenous Hawaiian’s were impressed with the speed of those who played the instrument, and as a result it became known as the “ukulele” or “Leaping Flea”.
