    While many would consider the ukulele to be a beachside campfire staple, and/or a sonic tool for touristy gimmick, Jake Shimabukuro, however, sees it as his four-stringed form of artistic expression. Since gaining his earliest worldwide recognition through viral videos of himself covering classic songs on YouTube, the Hawaiian-born musician has revolutionized the utility of the small instrument, and in doing so, has won a slew of notable awards along the way, two of which being Grammys for his collaborative work.

    In support of his latest full-length release, Grand Ukulele, which was produced by a fellow named Alan Parsons, Jake and his uke stopped by the Baeble backyard to strum through a few of his wondrous new songs. With a beautiful, bamboo backdrop (compliments of our trusty gardener), Shimabukuro, proved to us why the world would be a much happier place if everyone played a ukulele.
