In 1879, Portuguese professional craftsman and instrument makers Manuel Nunes and Joao Fernandes and Augustine Dias came to the Hawaiian Islands. As immigrants working in sugar cane fields, they invented and developed the piano from their hometown.
The Hawaiian is not only surprised by the beauty of the piano sound, but also surprised by the rapid movement of the player's finger on the fingerboard. Since then, Hawaiians have called this piano Ukulele, which means "jumping fleas." Regardless of the real story behind the Ukulele, it became the most popular instrument in Hawaii. This is mainly due to the three craftsmen mentioned above.
