Consider the humble ukulele: a four-stringed instrument adopted by Portuguese immigrants in Hawaii’s sugar cane fields. Jake Shimabukuro has taken this seemingly simple instrument to new heights, with his energetic reinterpretations of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Ave Maria,” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” making him a viral star. In 2012, award-winning documentary Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings was released tracking his life, career, and music. His mastery of the ukulele, has made him an acoustic music icon, declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone.
Shimabukuro now travels the world, collaborating with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma and Ziggy Marley, and spreading his craft, his passion, and his positivity at 140 shows per year. This special solo performance in the Jack Singer Concert Hall will be an absolute treat for your ears, and inspire you to believe anything is possible.
“Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can’t see anybody else catching up with.” – Eddie Vedder
