UKULELE LADY and more ....... Early Dutch HAWAIIAN MUSIC

I wondered how Hawaiian music became popular in our country, The Netherlands. Early 1925 the Hawaiian band Insulinde directed by mr. Von Lutzow performed for the HDO ( The Hilversumsche Draadlooze Omroep). For the very first time a Dutch Hawaii orchestra played for the radio. All eight members of the band were inhabitants of the Dutch East Indies, a Dutch colony in those days, also known as Insulinde. They used the typically Hawaiian instruments and on a picture from February 1925 you can see that they used several string instruments, including the hawaian guitar and a ukulele.
