Renowned for his super-fast and complex finger work, ‘ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro will return to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater on Friday, Dec. 11, with special guests from the Maui Songwriters Festival as part of its Ho‘onanea Series.

Shimabukuro has redefined the meaning of music that comes from the ‘ukulele.

There is no doubt that Jake embodies the heart and soul of ‘ukulele music, as no one else can wring the emotion, beauty, meaning and thrills out of four strings like he can.

Though Shimabukuro is versatile with all the Hawaiian standards, he is constantly expanding his repertoire to combine elements of jazz, blues, funk, rock, bluegrass, classical, folk and flamenco─and it all works amazingly well in his talented hands.
