Taimane and Her Quartet, Hawaiki Tour

Tuesday, October 25, 2022 • 8PM

Born and raised in Hawaii of Hapa Samoan descent, ukulele virtuoso and songwriter Taimane morphs genres that stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of the island, whether delicately finger picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin. Come experience the fierceness of a rock star filtered through the intoxicating sweetness of the ukulele, and see why Taimane is quickly becoming a global cultural beacon.

Joining Taimane for her performance at Pepperdine will be: 
Ramiro Marziani, classical guitar
Stefie Dominguez, percussion
Baethoven, violin, cello, harmony vocals
Sky Fung, contemporary and Polynesian dance
Norm Munoz, Polynesian dance


"So much magic unfolded in such short order. Within the first moments of Taimane's stunning set, we hear her play fiery flamenco, a famous phrase from the opera Carmen, a touch of Bach and more than a nod to her Hawaiian homeland, all on her ukulele." - Bob Boilen, host of NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts
