Ukulele Festival Hawaii Legacy Award presented to Jake Shimabukuro 2019 -

At the Ukulele Festival Hawaii Gala on July 19, 2019, Roy and Kathy Sakuma presented the Ukulele Festival Hawaii Legacy Award to Hawaii’s ukulele treasure, Jake Shimabukuro.
Jake Shimabukuro first came to the world’s attention with his deeply beautiful and original take on George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in a viral video that dominated YouTube in 2005 with over 15 million views. In the 21st century, Jake has virtually reinvented the four-string instrument and is the most influential and iconic ukulele player of this generation, topping Billboard World Music Charts. His strong ties to the ukulele are forged by years of lessons as a young student at Roy Sakuma Ukulele Studios and further developing his craft by studying the likes of ukulele masters Eddie Kamae, Ohta San and Peter Moon. While balancing his tremendous professional achievements with his and two young sons, Jake also remains firmly rooted in his commitment to community frequently performing at schools and urging youngsters to find their passion and live drug free.
