I love the ukelele…and maybe this is why

From TEDtalks2010:

Ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro says his traditional, Hawaiian instrument, which he learned to play at age 4, can make the world a less violent place.

“I’ve always believed it’s the instrument of peace,” he said, “because if everyone played the ukulele, this would be a much more peaceful place.”

Shimabukuro says people can’t help but smile when they hear the two-octave, stringed instrument. He likened its tone to the sound of children laughing.
