ABOUT CUBWORLD a.k.a. Jacob Kongaika"I was raised in the South Pacific (Tonga, Samoa, and Hawaii). For as long as I can remember, my parents sang old Tongan songs, which are rich in chords and harmony. I enjoy all music ranging from the classics to jazz, from System of a Down to Tim McGraw. I am addicted to music and the composition process. I picked up a guitar and played a note about 8 years ago. Five years ago, my sister gave me my first Martin acoustic guitar and I've been playing ever since."
