From Dan Oko, The Austin Chronicle:
The ukulele dares us to laugh. Yet without virtuoso ambassador Shimabukuro – raised in Hawaii, playing since age 4 – today's uke fad would never rise beyond novelty. Between last year's irresistible Peace Love Ukulele and the 8 million YouTube views of his miraculous version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," Shimabukuro will have the last laugh.
