Ukulele Beats

Ukulele Beats is an IG where we learn and play the ukulele together! The ukulele is a cute little musical instrument which can be played solo or in an ensemble. Once in a while, we perform for the Tembusu community. But usually, we just have fun strumming together. It’s all very chill, we welcome both experienced and inexperienced players. The aim is to build a supportive community where ukulele players help one another learn, and ultimately play together.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
