Until the 20th Century, if you wanted music, you had to make it yourself. Back then, music was embedded in our families, our communities, even our work. When the phonograph came along, none of us was good enough anymore and many became passive in relation to music: consumers rather than participants. Now, in the 21st Century, people are taking back the music, learning to make their own, forming communities, and the easy-to-learn ukulele with its wealth of old-time tunes evoking simpler times, is the instrument of choice. This award-winning documentary travels the world to discover why so many people are turning to the ukulele to express themselves, connect with the past and with each other.

Many of us remember a time when basketball shorts barely covered the gonads, computers were for the birds, and playing ukulele earned you a seat at the cafeteria's misfit table and a backstage pass at the Tiny Tim concert. Today those shorts would get you arrested, computer expertise earns the big bucks, and videos of solid uke playing generates millions of views and accolades on YouTube. Oh yeah, the times they are a-changin'! Uke is hot. And why not? You can make a whole lot of music with those four strings; Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's platinum-selling recording of Over the Rainbow is nothing short of musical genius (rest in peace Iz); Ten-million folks tuned in Jake Shimabukuro's viral While My Guitar Gently Weeps video but check out his Bohemian Rhapsody performance at TED; Jazzers will appreciate the range and tone you can eke out of a uke by watching Abe Lagrimas Jr. perform Autumn Leaves; The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain treats us to higher brow uke performance of the The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

The Danish trio (Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen, violin; Ale Carr, cittern; Nikolaj Busk, piano & accordion) returns with their second recording of cross-genre folk music. Guests include a folk choir and The Danish String Quartet. The artists say: "We met by chance one night during a folk festival in Copenhagen. Ale and Rune were standing in the corner of a pub jamming some folk tunes. Nikolaj just came in, sat at the piano and began to play along. The three of us ended up playing together all through the night. That was in 2009. Six months after we met, Rune held his debut concert at the Royal Danish Academy of Music.

Blues / Electric Blues / Blues Revival / Delta Blues

Two classic Hooker LPs, all digitally re-mastered, 22 solid slabs of dark, leathery, brooding nostalgia. This is the electric blues at its very roots. If there’s still anyone out there reading this magazine who hasn’t at least one Hooker album in their collection, then you’re still a long way from qualifying as a blues aficionado. So this is a good place to start. This stripped-bare, one man and a growling electric guitar (on most tracks) music is the stuff those guys who fled the south for the auto production lines in the north used to listen to.
