Ukulele or cavaquinho? Adventures in Portugal
I started playing the ukulele in 2008 after reading about George Harrison’s great love for the instrument, and have written many sad songs on it since. On a recent trip to Portugal I decided to find out about the precursor to the ukulele we know and love – the cavaquinho.
Come with me on an adventure to find a cavaquinho in Lisbon, and see what happens next!
