HAWAIKI TOUR

★  TAIMANE  ★
HAWAII’S POLYCHROMATIC UKULELE VIRTUOSO

— 50+ Million Video Views and 500,000+ Social Followers —
A night of volcanic virtuosity, mystical vibes and irresistible rhythms awaits.

“I didn’t see anyone at the [SXSW 2019] festival doing anything close to what she [Taimane] does on stage. She shreds on ukulele and rocks everything from Beethoven to Led Zeppelin. Somehow she manages to not only rock out but connect the audience with meaningful Hawaiian traditions and dances.”
Austin American-Statesman

“Taimane rocks the stage with a sensual vibrancy and a white hot talent that captivates and beguiles!”
Pierce Brosnan (007)

“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 Tiny Desk Concerts

★  CONCERT PREVIEW  ★

Virtuoso musician and songwriter Taimane takes the Avalon stage with her trio as part of her first tour outside of Hawai‘i since 2020.
After hundreds of her shows around the world, concertgoers walk away thrilled not just because they saw Taimane’s incredible musical prowess, but because they experienced a unique, emotional, and powerful show.

She is best known for her fierce and inventive style of playing the ukulele, helping the hapa Samoan artist garner over 50 million video views and 400,000 social media followers to date.

Taimane is hungry to pick up right where she left off in 2020, dazzling audiences with her unique talent, style, and repertoire—from Bach to rock, flamenco infernos to tribal hymns.

Taimane’s 2022 tour will see her headline dates from California to Boston and the UK including her debut at the Glastonbury mega-festival in England. This year, she will also be releasing her first new album in four years, “Hawaiki,” an autobiographical record whose protagonist discovers profound meaning upon connecting with her Polynesian ancestry amidst a wild adventure.

“It feels amazing to be hitting the road again and coming out of the last two years in a stronger place than before,” shares Taimane. “My first show of this year at Kahilu Theatre in April was so special – great to be back in front of in-person audiences, showcasing my new music and enjoying the ride, including my debut at Glastonbury! Cannot wait to see you soon. 💓”
