A Ukulele Christmas

Some of you might remember that I started playing the ukulele a few months back. My love for the ukulele has grown and so has my passion for finding new ukulele artists and music.

I discovered this ukulele virtuoso and award-winning artist Brittni Paiva, who has developed a strong following internationally and back at home in Hawaii.

Paiva started playing piano at the age of four and slowly added drums, bass, and guitar until the age of 11 when she found her love for the ukulele.

This young ukulele virtuoso has released five albums, two singles, and contributed to various compilations such as Legends of the Ukulele Vol. 2. She was the first recipient of the Ukulele Album of the Year category of the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards.

If you haven’t heard her play, I thought I’d share with my fellow bloggers Paiva playing The Christmas Song. Here’s wishing all of you a Mele Kalikimaka.

Shine On
