Jake Shimabukuro, Pure Heart, Saturday

ʻUkulele master-composer Jake Shimabukuro who can play classical, jazz, blues and other genres, joins with members of his former group Pure Heart at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on Saturday, Jan. 21, at 7:30 p.m.

Shimabukuro has taken the ‘ukulele to points previously thought impossible, and in the process he’s reinvented the applications for this tiny, heretofore under-appreciated four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ‘ukulele.”

Pure Heart is a Hawaiian contemporary trio that Jake started with two friends in 1994. The group also includes guitarist-singer Jon Yamasato and Lopaka Colon on percussion. Pure Heart etched out a unique sound of Hawaiian/pop/latin/jazz which has been keeping the attention of audiences for almost 30 years. Shimabukuro was recently nominated by President Joe Biden to serve as a member for the National Council on the Arts.
