Melbourne Recital Centre’s favourite ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro makes his triumphant return to Elisabeth Murdoch Hall in 2017.
Jake has elevated the ukulele from a beloved Hawaiian folk instrument to a world-class vehicle, fearlessly traversing boundaries and putting his inspired touch on everything from island standards, to popular tunes and, most recently, classical symphonic concertos.
Viewed by his peers as a musician’s musician, Jake’s discography includes collaborations with a wide range of artists, from Yo-Yo Ma, Jimmy Buffett, Jack Johnson and Cyndi Lauper to Ziggy Marley, Dave Koz, Lyle Lovett and Bette Midler. He’s sold out world-class venues, played at Bonnaroo, SXSW, the Playboy Jazz Festival, Fuji Rock Festival, the influential TED conference, and even performed for Queen Elizabeth II at a Royal Variety Performance.
Jake’s music has redefined the ukulele for the 21st century and on this tour he showcases material from his latest album Nashville Sessions – his first album of original songs and one of his most adventurous, multifaceted and engaging recordings yet.
Jake’s on a mission to revolutionise our perception of the four-string, two-octave instrument, expanding the limits of the ‘uke’ further than you ever thought possible. Have a listen and join the cause.
