Eight ukulele masters spread a spirit of wit, playfulness, and camaraderie as they strum through a diverse repertoire that includes everything from “Flight of the Valkries” to Tchaikovsky, from Nirvana to Spaghetti Western soundtracks. They’re The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, a group of all-singing, all-strumming Ukulele players.
They’re independent, anarchic, funny, virtuosic, thought provoking and mind boggling. They have sixteen-handedly changed the face of the ukulele world. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll never think about music in the same way after you’ve encountered the Ukes’ depraved musicology, giving you ‘one plucking thing after another’.
Today there are thousands of ukulele orchestras, but it started here. The original and the best. The orchestra which made the uke cool: The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
