Story of Ukulele Festival
我們最初開始系由幾個人拎住ukulele到處玩音樂，ukulele系一個細小但又好易上手的樂器，彈ukulele 唔單止樂器咁簡單，本身就系一件洋溢著夏威夷熱情、親切的感覺，透過我哋同ukulele 依個好伙伴經歷不同遊歷後，ukulele帶俾我哋既比得到更多，除左互相音樂交流，彼此間的分享合作，甚至友誼，親子關係亦有所昇華，逐漸多人喜歡及加入，由十幾人的小活動慢慢成長為今日的「Hong Kong Ukulele Festival」！
今次既活動中，我哋當然有表演的時段，場地將有一個大舞台，給香港及來自世界各地的好手為我們帶上精彩的音樂及表演，除了ukulele 外，也會有其他樂器表演或合奏如：結他、Hula Dance、口琴 ...，等大家可以一次過享受眼睛和耳朵的音樂盛會。
同時間舞台後方，亦會很多有趣好玩的遊戲攤位、音樂及手工工作坊等等，令更多既人嘗試接觸ukulele ，輕輕鬆鬆一齊jam下歌 。另外，仲有ukulele 的攝影區，等大家影低依個咁特別的時刻，留低與ukulele 的回憶，令ukulele 往後都能成為大家音樂路上的一個好幫手，仲有美味的美食及飲品攤位。
UKEHK was founded in 2009 by several people who love the ukulele and Hawaiian culture. At the time, not many people in Hong Kong knew about the ukulele, so we became the first group of people to introduce the instrument to Hong Kong.
When we first started, we were just several people playing music on the ukulele. The ukulele is a small, easy-to-learn instrument. It is not only easy to play, it also brings a part of the Hawaiian culture and spreads love among people. Because playing the ukulele spreads Hawaiian culture, encourages cooperation, forms friendships, and strengthens parent-child relationships, people have started to learn to play the ukulele. What was started by ten people slowly became the event it is today: the Hong Kong Ukulele Festival.
We aim to to make this event more than a gathering of people who enjoy playing the ukulele, but a fun event for everyone to picnic and enjoy music, and even meet people around the world to learn from, exchange, and experience different cultures. In addition to that, while people can enjoy the music, they can also eat and admire the beautiful view of the harbour. It is as if the event is set in Hawaii, enjoying the scenery while listening to music.
There will obviously be time for performances in the event. The stage is not only for players from Hong Kong but also for some of the world’s best players to share their wonderful music and unique performances. In addition to the ukulele, there will be other performances such as the guitar, the ocarina, Hula dancing, the harmonica and many more. Everyone can see and hear the beauty around them.
There will also be many fun and interesting game booths and music and craft workshops, so more can learn about the ukulele, how to play a song. There will be a photography area for people to capture the moment and keep good memories with the ukulele, so that it can help everyone out on the journey of music.
We hope to see you there!
