Brittni Paiva In Concert

Brittni Paiva returns to The Strum Shop for her annual visit to our humble abode. Brittni is one of the premier ukulele players in all of Hawaii, not to mention the continental USofA!


At 23 years of age, Brittni Paiva (pie –VAH) already a multi award-winning instrumentalist is known for her stunning articulation of what she can do on the ukulele going from slow and moving, to rapid-fire, classical-ballet, to ancient Japan, translating forms of jazz, world beat, pop, Flamenco and Latin, and filter these styles through her 4-string ukulele.

Brittni and her ukulele are a brilliant match: Both are humble in nature, small in size, and very powerful with proper delivery. Brittni and the `ukulele in general have gained notoriety, no longer confined by stereotypes about the instrument. There’s a global resurgence in the instrument’s popularity and she is part of the trend.

Releasing her 5th CD with the legendary Grammy winner Tom Scott — who personally requested to play with her at a concert last year — thinks Paiva is the real deal, because of her ability to play all kinds of music without losing her identity. “She plays it like a guitar, giving her a wide range of possibilities. She adopts tunes to this instrument, and makes them sound full and rich. She’s doing a great job and has a great future…She’s got a really unique voice in music,” he raved.

Ukulele, guitar, electric bass, piano and drums are Brittni’s instruments of choice, yet when it comes to the ukulele she invests as much soulfulness as skill. “Brittni brings a whole new spirit to the music and to the instrument: pop sensibilities in a smooth jazz format,” says John Schroeter, music producer and author of Between the Strings: The Secret Lives of Guitars. “It’s got a new kind of energy—it’s infectious.”

    As always, Brittni was at the top of her game. But be sure to buy her new CD. Her backing tracks for the concert for the new tunes were all just Brittni, but the work Tom Scott does on the CD is fantastic!
