Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Jake Shimabukuro is known for his energetic strumming on the ukulele. Jake’s performance incorporates elements of thoughtful, sophisticated arrangements to spontaneous, improvised passages. In addition to his original compositions, his repertoire includes Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, Schubert’s Ave Maria and Cohen’s Hallelujah. He started playing at the age of four, and his career skyrocketed with a YouTube clip of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that went viral and received more than 13 million views.
