'Apanhei-te Cavaquinho' Ukulele Episode

Here is part 4 of a 4-part Portuguese documentary on the Cavaquinho, a relative of our favorite 4-stringed instrument. This segment explores the Hawaiian branch of the family. Narration is in Portuguese, but the interviews in Hawaii are in English. Because he's talking to a musicologist and not a reporter, Jake actually has some insightful things to say about the way he thinks about orchestrating strings in his arrangements. Link
