The ukulele, often abbreviated to uke, is a member of the lute family; they generally feature four nylon or gut strings. Ukuleles originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete, a small guitar-like instrument, that was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese migrants. They gained great popularity elsewhere in the USA during the early 20th century, and from there spread around the world.
The tone and volume of the instrument vary with its size and construction. Ukuleles typically come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone.
