Do you remember the small guitar-like instrument that SRK carried in the cult movie Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge? You do? Well, that’s not the ukulele – it was a mandolin! Similar in appearance to the mandolin though, the ukulele is smaller in size than the guitar, and just as fun to play!
The ukulele is commonly associated with music from Hawaii where the name roughly translates as "jumping flea," likely because of the movement of the player's fingers. According to Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last Hawaiian monarch, the name means "the gift that came here," from the Hawaiian words uku (gift or reward) and lele (to come).
True to its name, the gift of the Ukulele has come here to India!
Just imagine that you and your team are in one of those exotic, beautiful beaches of Hawaii, a drink of Hawaiian Margarita in your hands, a cool summer breeze on your face and but of course, the sounds of the ukulele in the background…. Can one get closer to paradise?
FocusU now brings a challenge all the way from exotic Hawaii – The Ukulele Challenge!
In a session that is punctuated with strumming, singing, and laughing, The Ukulele Challenge promises to teach your team the basics of ukulele strumming, get your group moving to the beat, and draw the inner singer out in everyone. See the inhibitions melting away and watch your team break out in smiles, we promise – just nothing can stand in the way of a fun time for your team. With a fun mix of songs, our super talented music facilitators will take your team through a challenging and engaging session, allowing them to break out of their shells, try something new, cut loose, and have a blast!
Is the Ukulele Challenge suited for your team?
The Ukulele Challenge can be run for groups as small as 25 people to up to 300 at a time. All you need is a slot of 60 – 90 minutes, preferably an indoor space, and open-minded participants! Perfect for a session to unwind before dinner, or as a fun way to kick off the day, the Ukulele Challenge is a refreshing new experience for one and all. The activity can be optionally debriefed around several themes related to teams – like vibing to one another, the need to listen closely to team members and coming together to create music as a team, both metaphorically and in reality!
Let the sounds of the ukulele mix with well-known tunes to create a fun-filled musical adventure for your team! Come take a trip to Hawaii with us and your team….. try the Ukulele Challenge today!
