UKE MAD: That pun didn't really work, but Taimane will work her ukulele magic at Cafe Stritch.

Some people think of the ukulele as a souvenir, says the Hawaiian born uke virtuoso Taimane. She doesn’t take offense. In fact, she likes it, as it sets audience expectations low. That’s when she comes in and blows minds. With 24 years’ experience on the diminutive “underdog of instruments,” Taimane is comfortable shredding through Bach, Led Zeppelin or her own material. She comes to town courtesy of San Jose Jazz and in support of her new album, Elemental—a suite of songs about earth, wind, fire, water, ether and the underworld—due out June 5. (NV)
