If I remember it correctly, I didn't know Ukulele before I entered high school. Back to that time, many teenagers at my age were obsessed with guitar. It was a trend to play guitars and have own bands. In my mind at that time, I didn't think there was another instrument as cool as guitar (and violin). That was the reason I was not motivated to explore other instruments until 2012. A song called "Ukelele" by Jay Chou changed my mind.
Speaking of Jay Chou, he is the No.1 idol in all most all Chinese people at my age. He is a super talented songwriter and singer and became popular all over Asia around 2002. He inaugurated a totally new era of Chinese pop songs. In 2012, his new album "Opus 12". Ever time when Jay released a new album, almost all of my friends would go to buy it and listen to it over and over again. The song "Ukulele" is one of song in this album. This was the first time I got to know what was this instrument look like and how beautiful its sound was. From then on, I started to search more about this cute string instrument. Now I want to share this special song here to you. I would like to know how you like it in comments.
