On Hot Instruments: Didg and Uke

Among some of the nations of the Orient, music and harmony was not approved of, but the Manifested Light, Bahá’u’lláh, in this glorious period has revealed in Holy Tablets that singing and music are the spiritual food of the hearts and souls. In this dispensation, music is one of the arts that is highly approved and is considered to be the cause of the exaltation of sad and desponding hearts. 

What are the most popular instruments to take up these days? By my unofficial, unscientific survey, it's gotta be the didgeridoo and the ukelele. Shawn regales the Area Teaching Committee with his didg music on occasion. Tom plays uke at a lot of his gigs around Tacoma. And at work, there is this guy who plays both. -gw
