(SPOT.ph) You've probably tried all kinds of new hobbies this past year in quarantine from mindful journaling to painting by numbers and everything in between. If you're looking for more ways to have fun at home and get your creative juices flowing, why not take the time to learn a musical instrument? You can start with a fairly simple one like the ukulele. Unlike larger instruments like guitars or pianos, you won't need much space at home to start learning the ukulele. The itty-bitty four-string will be much easier to maneuver and may even help you find new ways to exercise your artistic skills. If you're not sure where to find one, check out Cebu-based brand Wagas Ukuleles—we're currently eyeing their adorable Ursula Collection!
Every instrument in Wagas' line highlights local artistry and craftsmanship. Their instruments are deeply influenced by the culture of Compostela, a town in Cebu province nestled between the mountains and the sea. Their ukuleles and other handicrafts aim to redefine traditional craftsmanship with fresh designs that don't sacrifice quality or construction.
Wagas' new Ursula Collection is inspired by and named after owner Richie Wagas’ wife, with each ukulele modeled after her fun and outgoing personality. Accordingly, every instrument in the line sports a fresh, vibrant color. Just looking at them will inspire you to learn how to play!
