Shimabukuro has become one of the most exceptional and innovative uke players in the history of the instrument. As a performer, he has drawn comparisons to musical titans such as Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. Throughout his rich and varied catalog of albums, Shimabukuro captures the many moods of the uke, fearlessly traversing boundaries and putting his inspired touch on everything from island standards to popular tunes and classical symphonic concertos.

Shimabukuro has collaborated with a wide variety of artists, from Yo-Yo Ma, Jimmy Buffett, Jack Johnson and Cyndi Lauper to Ziggy Marley, Dave Koz, Lyle Lovett, and Bette Midler. He has wowed audiences at SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Playboy Jazz Festival and the cutting-edge TED conference.
