    • Synopsis
    • JAKE SHIMABUKURO: LIFE ON FOUR STRINGS is a compelling portrait of an inspiring and inventive musician whose virtuoso skills on the ukulele have transformed all previous notions of the instrument’s potential. Through intimate conversations with Shimabukuro (pronounced she-ma-BOO-koo-row), LIFE ON FOUR STRINGS reveals the cultural and personal influences that have shaped the man and the musician. From his humble beginnings of being raised by a single mother in a modest apartment to his ascent to international stardom. On the road from Los Angeles to New York to Japan, the film captures the solitary life on tour: the exhilaration of performance, the wonder of newfound fame, the loneliness of separation from home and family.
