Jody Kamisato and Jason Tom with this Ukulele Beatbox Collaborative Tutorial. An ukulele is a 4-string instrument that originated in Portugal and it was later introduced to the Hawaiian Islands during the plantation period and the ukuelele was adopted into our Hawaiian Music Culture throughout the Hawaiian Islands. It's an instrument that nearly all residents young and old of the Hawaiian Islands pick up and start playing or have at one point picked up playing and tried it. Beatboxing originates in the A Cappella vocal art tradition from the musical stylings and genre of jazz with scat singing and the urban hip-hop music culture and can be traced even further back to African cultural vocal traditions and languages. Jody and Jason had a great time with this collaborative tutorial, please let us know what you think in the comments. Thank you!
