It’s been three years since ukulele virtuoso Taimane has graced the Kahilu Theatre’s stage, and Waimea welcomed her back last Saturday with a warm round of cheers and applause. She took the opportunity to debut new material from her upcoming album “Hawaiki” and revisited some classics that are always crowd favorites.
