Taimane & Her Trio – Element Tour

Virtuoso, songwriter and theater producer, Taimane, is best known for her fierce and inventive style of playing the ukulele. Hailing from Hawaii with a name which translates to “diamond” from Samoan, Taimane is a born entertainer and self-taught musician who learned and still plays by ear. Her attraction to the four-string island staple began at age 3, and by age 10, she regularly performed in public, busking in Waikiki every Friday night with her father holding down security duties and Waikiki Beach Boys (adults whose home & workplace was the beach) serving as her band. By age 13, Taimane landed a position in Don Ho’s show literally playing in the spotlight every week until Ho’s passing. Fast forward to today, and you have an artist who tours the world and has carved out a unique niche in music – merging a wide-array of genres, from Bach to rock, flamenco infernos to tribal hymns, summoning a seemingly limitless palette of emotions via an instrument previously viewed as a restricted device. ● Over 15 million video views & 250,000 social media followers ● 2019 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Favorite Entertainer of the Year "Taimane rocks the stage with a sensual vibrancy and a white hot talent that captivates and beguiles!” - Pierce Brosnan (aka 007) “Every so often we discover an artist as he or she is about to emerge into a much bigger arena. These experiences have included Chris Botti, Trombone Shorty, Kamasi Washington and Lake Street Dive. Now, we have a new discovery - Taimane. She's destined for a big, bright future, and I encourage you to catch her show as soon as you can.” ​ - Bruce Labadie, Artistic and Festival Director of San Jose Jazz “I didn’t see anyone at the does on stage. She shreds on ukulele and rocks everything from Beethoven to Led Zeppelin. Somehow she manages to not only rock out but connect the audience with meaningful Hawaiian traditions and dances.” - Austin360 (part of the Austin American-Statesman, Austin’s daily newspaper) “A phenomenally talented ukulele virtuoso, Taimane has developed a flamenco-inspired strumming technique that is breathtaking. In concert, her hands often blur in motion as she passionately strums while dancing around the stage. It’s an intoxicating experience both visually and aurally that has blown away audiences both nationally and abroad.” ​ -Jon Woodhouse, The Maui News “Absolutely fantastic show!” ​ - Jerry VanLeeuwen, Exec. Director, California Center for the Arts Escondido “It was an incredible performance!” ​ - Todd Stein, President & CEO, Mid-America Arts Alliance “What an amazing artist!” ​ - Kristine Bretall, Director of Performing Arts, Sun Valley Center
