Library of Congress - Conversation with Herb Ohta Jr.: 'Ukulele Virtuoso from Hawai'i

Description International recording artist Herb Ohta, Jr., is one of today's most prolific 'ukulele masters. Influenced by Jazz, R&B, Latin and Brazilian music, as well as traditional Hawaiian sounds, he puts his stamp on Hawaiian music by pushing the limits of tone and technique on this beautiful instrument. The son of 'ukulele legend "Ohta-san," he started playing at the age of three, and began teaching at the age of nine. He now shares the music of Hawai���i and the beauty of the 'ukulele with people around the world, performing concerts and conducting instructional workshops.
