“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

MACC HEADLINE DEBUT
Now is your chance to catch local star, Taimane, in a warm, cozy venue in fresh and full blossom before bigger stages beckon. Taimane brings her quartet (ukulele / vocals, classical guitar / vocals, percussion and cello) to Maui for her debut headline show at the MACC – an intimate, one-night-only concert Saturday, March 30 at McCoy Studio Theater.
2017 and 2018 were breakout years for Taimane, and she’s on track to experience her greatest rise yet in 2019. Taimane kicked off this year presenting concerts in New York at the largest performing arts conference in the world and walked away with multiple offers from major mainland theaters (1,000+ seat venues).
At the beginning of March, Taimane and her band descend into Austin, TX where she will be showcasing at SXSW Music Festival, one of the world’s largest and most influential music events with masses of concertgoers plus thousands of music media and industry players.
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. Come experience her beauty, grace and passion and see why Taimane is quickly becoming a global cultural beacon.
