aNueNue Guitar & Ukulele - Life Music Play
aNueNue (pronounced as AA-Nuw-eh-NUW-eh) means rainbow in Hawaiian. The "Ke Ali'i Anuenue", or Rainbow Chief, is the guardian spirit and one of the best known Hawaiian petroglyphs. The arc above the Rainbow Chief's head shows that he radiates wisdom and power and shoulders responsibility. Ke Ali'i Anuenue is the keeper of the land and its people. At aNueNue USA, we harness the Rainbow Chief's spirit and feel that we are all responsible for protecting Mother Earth.
Johnson Liao, founder of aNueNue Music, finds that the company and instrument itself, shares the same philosophy. The ukulele is a happy musical instrument; it spreads love, peace and soul. It was from this philosophy that aNueNue Ukulele was born.
aNueNue Music's journey begins in 2008 with a team of music lovers. We have a strong will and a passion to make great acoustic and electric guitars, but we had no idea we would fall in love with the Ukulele the way we did. We've sourced and tested various woods from all over the world. We found some of the best craftsman in Taiwan and China to help build our instruments. Because we already had a strong musical instrument background, aNueNue was able to re-invent the wheel and make new innovative Ukulele bracing and construction. After several years of honing our craft, we believe we produce one of the sweetest sounding instruments on the market today.
aNueNue Ukulele Company is from Taiwan. Taiwanese are friendly and big hearted. Our motto is: Life, Music, Play. We have worked with schools and various charity groups over the years and we believe that our company should be socially responsible by giving back to society when we can. We are not only trying to make the world's finest musical instruments, we are also hoping to make the world a better place. The one true language of the world is music and we love contributing to the conversation.
