Though she's new to me, there's probably many of you who know who Taimane is. That outfit she's wearing just screams, " Rockstar!"

Huh? You mean Bizet, right? Just starting the vid, but that's not Bach.... then she goes from Bizet to Lloyd Webber, to Bach... weird.

It's not really my style but I don't know if I'm just being a grumpy old purist. I'm not usually a purist or traditionalist. Maybe it just makes me grumpy and I don't know why. Certainly she has skillz. :)

If anyone watches 30 Rock, is it that I'm wired to hate other women? Oh I hope not... :)

Loss of points for the mini-hat thing.

she plays like that and she can wear whatever she wants. mini-hat thing, batting helmet, bald, rasta wig, trucker cap, fedora, one of those giant hats they wear to the kentucky derby - it'd all work for her. seeing this video reminds me i gotta go practice some more now.

I've noticed from a few of her vids that she usually only has six or sometimes even 5 strings on it, though. Makes me wonder if she's the inspiration for 6-string ukes.

In any case, she's got amazing talent and poise, and she's not at all hard on the eyes, either... :)

You really need to check out some of her newer professional level music vids - "grandpa" and a couple of others where she sings more and does her own original material.

I still can't figure out why her vids typically only draw a few thousand views, even after being up for a couple of years. I guess the YouTube community just has poor taste... LOL
