Ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro has redefined the way people think of the instrument. Now more than 10 years and 14 million plus views since his seminal YouTube cover of George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” he continues to combine his influences, from legendary ukulele players to rock musicians, to create a sound that’s uniquely his own. His sophisticated arrangements, energetic strumming and improvised passages have earned him comparisons to musical innovators like Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. With a repertoire that includes Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Franz Schubert’s “Ave Maria” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” Shimabukuro infuses his performances with his delightful vision, making for a surprisingly revelatory experience.
