Ukulele virtuoso Taimane to perform Oct. 19 at Center

Ukulele virtuoso and rising star, Taimane will be performing for one-night only at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido on Saturday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall. 

Born and raised in Hawaii of hapa Samoan descent, Taimane is renowned for both her pyrotechnics on the four-string island staple and prowess in using music and movement to paint vibrant images that elicit deep emotional response.

 Taimane will feature her band, Ramiro Marziani (classical guitar), Jonathan Heraux (percussion) and Baethoven (violin, background vocals), as well as dancers, Li‘o (Polynesian dance) and Sky Fung (contemporary dance).

This year Taimane has established herself as one of the most exciting new stars in world music. She kicked off 2019 presenting concerts in New York at the largest performing arts gathering in the world and garnered major praise and buzz.

Taimane quickly built additional momentum at the mega SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas, where National Public Radio (NPR) hailed Taimane as one of the week’s stand-out artists.

After over a decade of passionately pursuing her art and investing in herself year after year, Taimane is poised to share her music and vision of Hawaii with the world.
