“Forget everything you know about the ukulele” - tiME

For Shimabukuro, Grand Ukulele feels like the next step in a career that really started at the age of 4 when he first picked up the instrument, through a successful local career in Hawaii and his first brush with fame on YouTube. Now, he’s a respected, popular musician looking to make a lasting musical mark. “I feel really connected to this record,” he says. “It was an honor to work with Alan and all those great musi-


cians. It really felt like old friends coming together— there was so much positive energy surrounding the project—it was a magical experience that I’ll never forget.”
