Sometimes a foolish song can touch an audience more than high art; sometimes music that takes itself too seriously is revealed to be hilarious. And the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain masterfully does both!
The Ukulele Orchestra is a group of all-singing, all-strumming Ukulele players, using instruments bought with loose change, that believes all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the Ukulele.
You may never think about music in the same way once you’ve been exposed to the Ukes’ depraved musicology. A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping experience that goes from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks.
