Jake Shimabukuro - 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' - Live at Anthology San Diego

Categories: Music

By Anthology San Diego / Jake Shimabukuro - 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' - Live at Anth

Jake Shimabukuro is a ukulele virtuoso and composer known for his fast and complex finger work.  His music combines elements of jazz, blues, funk, rock, bluegrass, classical, folk, and flamenco.

Shimabukuro became famous internationally in 2006, when a video of him playing a virtuosic rendition of While My Guitar Gently Weeps was posted on YouTube without his knowledge and became one of the first viral videos on that site.  His concert engagements, collaborations with legendary musicians, media appearances, and music production have snowballed since then.

In 2012, an award-winning documentary was released tracking his life, career, and music, titled Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings; it has screened in a variety of festivals, aired repeatedly on PBS, and been released on DVD.
