Originally brought by the Portuguese immigrant Joao Fernandes in 1879 Braguinha, a local form of the cavaquinho, from Madeira to Hawaii. There it got the name "ukulele" ("jumping flea"), which should reflect the impact of the Hawaiians at the sight of the rapidly moving fingers accross the fingerboard of the instrument. Hawaiian ukulele came to America to Europe and was well received in the music scene. Ever since Stefan Raab and "TV Total", the ukulele is in Germany also a real cult musical instrument!
