Family Ukulele Music Festival 2009 Auckland.


Ukulele Festival 2009,a free, fun, family day out guaranteed to put a smile on your face and was held on at the Mt Smart Stadium in Penrose, Auckland.

Some of my school kids took part in this Kiwileles, a 1300 strong massed ukulele orchestra. There was a great line up of local and international ukulele artists including Tongan virtuoso Sione Aleki and the ever-popular Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra.

When D was young, I bought from a flea market a little ukulele. She used to strum it and pretend it was a guitar. Today, she is the only of my kids who is musically inclined.

It is always good to have a child who is musically inclined.

I love children who can sing in harmony....

Ukulele is a nice instrument. Reminds me of coconut palms hula skirts and good music....

Ukuleles are relatively cheap instruments, our Polynesian students are encouraged to learn it. The school had on loan some too.
