Jake Shimabukuro: Christmas in Hawaii
Known for his fast and complex finger work, Jake Shimabukuro is a ukulele virtuoso, whose music combines elements of jazz, blues, funk, rock, bluegrass, classical, folk, and flamenco. He began playing the ukulele at age 4, learning at first from his mother, who was an accomplished ukulele player and singer. In 2006, a video of his virtuosic rendition of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” was posted on YouTube, leading to viral and eventual commercial success.
