Just got a delivery from Mountain Apple and I have been really enjoying the new TAIMANE CD called 'UKULELE DANCE. Good job girl!
Check this out guys- Samples are at the bottom of this link (http://www.mountainapplecompany.com/new-releases/ukulele-dance) but not sure if it is on itunes yet. CD pack comes with an extra DVD anyway. I remember when she and her dad would come over to Ko'olau many years ago. She's always been great. Glad she kept to her dreams, give her some love and buy a CD!

Awesome! Luv Taimane! I missed getting to see her when I was there in June/July because she touring in Paris and Japan.

Arghhh! Shipping to Canada costs more than the CD itself. :(

Thanks for the samples Andrew! I'm liking it! Humm, might be worth the price of shipping. What's the bonus CD? Her older album?

I found her Ukulele Dance on iTunes but not released till Oct 30. Let the wait begin. :)

That is, as we say, a "must". Thank you, Andrew, for making me aware of it. Oct 30, on the calendar for iTunes.

I wish her overseas CD, the one with "Don't Worry Baby", would be released in the USA or on iTunes. It's a fab video, too.

Yep, definitely going to have to order that. Long story short, one of Taimane's videos was literally my introduction to "real" ukulele (all of my previous knowledge of ukulele coming via Tiny Tim on "Laugh In"). Ukulele wasn't even on my radar at the time. I was learning mandolin and followed a YouTube link to a "amazing mandolin street player" or something like that. It was one of her vids when she was in her early teens and, of course, it was ukulele not mandolin.

I didn't jump in immediately but a few weeks later, when my granddaughter started showing interest in my guitars I remembered that video and thought, "hey a ukulele would be perfect for her" (even now, a few years later, her hands are too small even for a 3/4 size guitar, she is small for her age). Anyway, my granddaughter lost interest after a few weeks but now I haven't touched my guitars hardly at all since the first of many ukes arrived on my doorstep. :)

So, while I've enjoyed the videos of many a fine player on YouTube since, Taimane gets full credit for first bringing the ukulele to my attention as a "real instrument."

And...it doesn't hurt any that she's really easy on the eyes, too... :)

Cool! Haven't seen that one before. :)

First time I saw Taimane play was on The Golf Channel. They had that travel show where they visit golf courses and they did a Hawaii episode with her playing in the background scenes.

No one looks better in a sundress and hanging from a banyan tree than Taimane. No one.
