KAPA Hawaiian FM morning personalities Jaz and Ka’ea welcomed Hawaii’s own, Jake Shimabukuro, to the KAPA Cafe.

Jake’s exceptional and complex finger work has made him become the world’s most famous ukulele player. At the age of 4, he started learning how to play from his mother, who was an accomplished ukulele player. In 2006, he became famous worldwide from a youtube video of him playing George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. He is currently working on his new album expected to release this year.
