I discovered the existence of the ukulele completely by accident when I stumbled upon a YouTube video featuring the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain back in April 2008. The Ukes are solely responsible for me taking up the uke and I believe they have inspired and will inspire many others.
Four excellent videos of songs they performed at the BBC Proms have just been uploaded to their YouTube Channel. These videos are taken from the DVD Prom Night which can be purchased from their website.
I have favourited their brilliant version of Psycho Killer by the Talking Heads. I must say, Will Grove-White‘s French is really sweet too :)
Only the Ukes could come up with the notion of combining Wagner‘s Ride of the Valkyries with Hawkwind‘s Silver Machine :
