Taimane's Hawaii Theatre Debut

Mar 21, 2016

‘Ukulele virtuoso Taimane will make her Hawai‘i Theater debut this coming weekend.

After parting ways with Mountain Apple recording she’s set out to push her music into larger stage productions.

Her new show ‘The Elements” is a musical and visual tribute to the four traditional elements—earth, air, fire and water.  She calls it a mixture of Cirque du Solei with Hawaiian music.  Her quick style of ‘ukulele playing is paired with Spanish flamenco, Japanese Taiko, and Latin percussion.  The music is backed up with spoken-word poetry, dancers, martial artists and aerialists. She spoke with HPR’s Nick Yee and said she enjoys bringing a Hawaiian instrument into a contemporary setting

Taimane’s presentation of ‘The Elements” takes place this Friday at the Hawai‘i Theater.
