About Taimane

The ‘ukulele has always been associated with Hawaiian music. its history has encompassed everything from Tin Pan Alley to Tiny Tim. At the dawn of the 21st century, the ‘ukulele is once again enjoying worldwide popularity.

When Taimane was five, her father gave her an ‘ukulele and there was no looking back. Taimane’s original compositions on this breakout CD are as far-ranging as her musical influences. ‘Ukulele Dance features her unique twist on Bach’s Tocatta and Lalo Schifrin’s Mission Impossible in a medley with the James Bond Theme. Listeners will be rivited by the artistry of her technique and the tapestry of her styling. They will come to understand why Taimane is lighting up the music industry.

Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres—from classical to rock to flamenco—and to stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai‘i, where she grew up. Her fingers fly and her body dances in a whirlwind of skill and sensuality… leaving audiences gaping with amazement!
