Uke fun

Yan Yalego with his cover of Sheik of Araby on a banjolele (via). From the beginning the ukulele has been the ultimate fusion instrument -- developed in Hawaii by Portugese immigrants and based on their cavaquinho. So, why not fuse it with an American banjo, put it in the hands of a Frenchman, singing a 1920's song about an Arabian sheik, in English?
