Jake Shimabukuro can still vividly remember the first time he held a ukulele at age four. It was an encounter that would shape his destiny and give the world one of the most exceptional and innovative uke players in the history of the instrument. Shimabukuro defies the notion that the ukulele is only capable of traditional Hawaiian music. Jake crosses musical genres as he amazes audiences with his revolutionary playing techniques and lightning fast fingers through jazz, blues, funk, classical, bluegrass, folk, flamenco, and rock.
