Jake Shimabukuro at TED: Friday Links

Jake Shimabukuro has performed at TED and impressed Bill Gates (who plays the uke himself after taking lessons from Warren Buffett).

Thanks to Ken and Krabbers, the ukulele festivals list has a few new entries.

Herman Vandecauter demonstrates ukulele resgueado.

Shelley Rickey is putting together an exhibition of painted ukuleles. It’s yet to seen whether any of them will feature Lisa Simpson making out with Astroboy.

In the comments: nutcrakerkuge schools in the Japanese behind the name U900: “U900 if read in Japanese (numbers have various ways of being pronounced) reads: oo-ku-re-re, or UKULELE! Kinda like english folks make words with phone numbers, but more directly. Another example is 39…san-queue…thank you.”

Ukulele promos are vastly superior to their non-uke cousins: L’Uke poster and flyer, Uke Valentino flyer, 30 ukulele, 30 artists
