You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it. - Robin Williams

Can’t get enough of the ukulele – and this is one of the best Hawaiian players – it’s amazing. • Without reservation we can say that you have never heard a ukulele played like this before! Taimane, which translates to “Diamond” in Samoan, sparkles on stage at TEDxPurdueU with a variety of genres of music, from classical to rock and a bit of traditional Hawaiian. Taimane perfectly reflects the different facets of her nature. Whether delicately finger­picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawaii, where she grew up. In addition to performing her own distinctive versions of well-­known pieces, Taimane weaves in original compositions that are as far ranging as her musical tastes. With the fierceness of a rocker, and the grace of a dancer, Taimane lights up rooms wherever she goes, sparkling like the diamond that she is. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
