Young Hawaiian ukulele prodigy Taimane Gardner takes her instrument far beyond the Hawaiian shores on which she grew up. As she says, “I don’t look at the ukulele as a Hawaiian instrument. I look at it as an instrument just like the guitar or the piano, and I put it in my hands and then I just play music that I enjoy.”
On her new album, Ukulele Dance, Taimane covers music like “Stairway to Heaven,” “Phantom of the Opera,” even the James Bond theme.
At just 23-years-old, Taimane is one of the most talented musicians you’ll ever witness. Her ukelele playing will absolutely blow your mind. Here she is at the San Diego Ukulele Festival showing effortlessly showing her skills.
