"Brittni Paiva - Living Ukulele" New DVD from Hawaii Uke Wizard

Brittni Paiva, Hawaii's 23-year-old ukulele phenomenon, announces the release of BRITTNI PAIVA LIVING UKULELE (Talmidim Productions, TPDVD-0611, 80 minutes, NTSC) The film features live performances, interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, a music video, and a section with ukulele lessons. Produced and directed by award-winning Maui filmmaker Kenneth K. Martinez Burgmaier, the film was recently world-premiered at the Temecula (CA) International Film Festival.

Brittni takes the viewer on tour with her across the islands of Hawaii as well as to Australia (the Cairns Ukulele Festival). Her various passions are featured, from her love for the ocean (she goes from fishing in Hilo to surfing at Waikiki Beach), to trekking across lava fields, drag racing (!), and a fascinating visit to a ukulele factory.

Musicians from Hawaii and elsewhere (Herb Ohta San, Brother Noland, Charles Brotman, Keoki Kahumoku, Tom Scott, Daniel Ho) comment on her unique ukulele style ?one that is influenced by jazz, blues, rock, pop, Hawaiian, and world music. There's also a dreamlike music video that depicts Brittni time-traveling to ancient Japan, where she meets Samurai warriors, Taiko Drummers, and views a special Japanese ceremony.
