In its most traditional form the Lanikai Soprano ukulele that owes its existence to Portuguese immigrants bringing their craft of instrument-building to Hawaii in the 1870s. Koa grows in abundance throughout Hawaii which is why it was used for making Ukuleles – the fact that it sounded amazing too turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
