Jake Shimabukuro

School day performance.

Returning to UMS after his wildly popular 2014 School Day Performance, Jake Shimabukuro combines the qualities of a long line of virtuoso ukulele players with modern rock to create a sound that’s uniquely his own but still firmly grounded in Hawaiian tradition.

He has redefined the ukulele, incorporating elements of thoughtful, sophisticated arrangements with spontaneous improvised passages. In addition to traditional ukulele material, his singular approach combines elements of jazz, blues, funk, rock, bluegrass, classical, swing, and flamenco.
