Jake Shimabukuro Documentary

2012, Tad Nakamura, USA, 56 min.

The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) presents this sneak peek at a behind-the-scenes profile of Hawaiian ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro. Startlingly young and breathtakingly unassuming, “the Hendrix of the ukulele” is equally at ease soloing with a symphony orchestra or entertaining a class of preschoolers. Director Nakamura captures pensive moments and triumphant performances in a film packed with numbers showing off the range of Shimabukuro’s amazing repertoire, from classical and pop to jazz, blues, and avant-garde. DigiBeta video. (BS)

The film will be followed by a 15-minute live ukulele performance by local musicians.
