That's A Wrap: Jake Shimabukuro at Baeble HQ
  • TUESDAY, JULY 30, 2013

Hawaiian musician and composer Jake Shimabukuro says the ukulele is the underdog of instruments, and that it's the instrument of peace. "What the world needs now is ukulele," he said during his TED performance a few years back. "If everyone played the ukulele, this world would be a much happier place."

Bright and early this morning, Jake Shimabukuro came by the Baeble HQ to practice what he preaches. The artist, who has won a Grammy for his work with Ziggy Marley and is regularly receiving the praises of artists like Eddie Vedder, is leading a charge that is redefining the traditional uses and preconceived notions surrounding his instrument. Jake blessed our backyard with the four-stringed brilliance of his music, including samples of his latest album Grand Ukulele, which was produced by musical legend Alan Parsons.

Enjoy the photos below, and be sure to stay tuned for the full experience when the video is posted in the coming weeks.
