Taimane Gardner: Ukulele medley

Hawaiian ukulele player Taimane Gardner plays here a personal interpretation of famous tunes including Mission Impossible theme, James Bond theme and Tico Tico.

This is the bio from her official website
At the age of five, Taimane picked up her first ukulele and began her future in performing. Playing on the streets of Waikiki with the beach boys, Taimane was discovered by legendary crooner, Don Ho and became a featured performer in his show. From there, her popularity grew and Taimane has performed around the world. She has played privately for John Travolta, Steven Seagal, George Clooney, and has opened for Earth Wind and Fire, Chicago, Jimmy Buffett, Chris Isaak, and many more.
 
Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres- form Classical to Rock to flamenco- and to stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai’i, where she grew up. Her fingers fly and her body dances in a whirlwind of skill and sensuality..leaving audiences gaping with amazement!  Listeners will be riveted by the artistry of her technique and the tapestry of her styling. They will come to understand why Taimane is lighting up the industry.
