Virtuoso and iconic ukulele rock star returns by popular demand! Shimabukuro has singularly altered expectations for his instrument. From his early days in Hawaii to a viral sensation playing George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on YouTube, his album has reached #1 in Billboard's Top World Music Albums. From collaborations with Alan Parsons to Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a PBS documentary about his life, Shimabukuro’s career makes a significant statement: the ukulele, with its humble four strings and modest two-octave range, is limited only by the imagination and creativity of the person playing it. In Shimabukuro’s hands, it is easy to believe the ukulele is capable of anything.

“…a ukulele virtuoso…a YouTube star…Shimabukuro has been nothing if not durable in recent years, steadily refining his craft.”
— The New York Times
