Papa Jake - Cook Islands icon and ukulele enthusiast

For those who have visited the Cook Islands, and you who have not yet experienced a small paradise for the first time.

Jake has been present at the Cook Islands International Airport for more than 35 years, with his winning smile and his soft voice, he touches his Hawaiian Kamaka ukulele while visitors and locals pass through customs and take their luggage.

Ten years ago he realized his dream of learning the ukulele and the joy of music that always makes people smile. Pete is our esteemed leader of the DAG band. Pete coined the phrase and named DAG shortly after the band was formed, where he observed that the members of his band played the songs better using only the 3 chords, DA and G. They also played Bm7 perfectly. Things have progressed.
