Kala Ukuleles

KalaKala Ukuleles are undoubtedly the best-selling ukuleles in the world today. They offer a hugely diverse range of ukuleles ranging from student models to professional and player’s instruments.
From Makala entry level ukes to models made from solid mahogany, flamed maple, Hawaiian Koa and Solid Acacia, there is a Kala ukulele to suit every type of ukulele player.

Travel ukes, Arch-tops, acoustic/electric models and the famous Kala U-Bass make the Kala range the widest in today’s ukulele industry.

Kala have kindly donated a KA-C Mahogany Concert Ukulele in a Kala Branded Gig Bag to this year's festival.

Kala ukuleles are distributed by Jacaranda


Since 2004 the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective has boldly gone where no ukuleles have gone before. The “MUK” is open to all who wish to join, regardless of age or experience, and they delight in crossing musical borders, smashing conceptual boundaries and raising the humble ukulele to new and outlandish heights! 

They perform at music festivals, pubs, clubs, race courses, parks, theatres, schools, and the streets. Old School, New School, No School! The MUK is a joyous celebration of the people's right to make music without restriction. Back in 2004 they announced that the Ukulele Revolution had arrived. They now proclaim its glorious victory!
