Mihirangi has been dubbed the Queen of Loops; a one-woman music-making machine and a world renowned live-loop artist with a unique ability to create a bandful of sounds with her voice, a few instruments and taonga puoro, singing in both English and Te Reo Māori.

An regular performer at international festivals, Mihirangi has shared the stage with such music stars as Public Enemy, Arrested Development, Lee Scratch Perry and Sly and Robbie. She was born with music in her blood. Both of Mihirangi’s parents were musicians, with her mother singing with artistic greats like Gladys Knight and Joe Cocker. Her first seven years were spent on tour with her parents until her mother put down roots at the Rereahu marae in Mangapeehi.  There, she was one of about 50 kids, educated and encouraged in kapa haka, matauranga Māori and music from the start. "It was a fantastic life for a kid."

When she was 16 she moved to Australia to study music full time. After touring internationally, having her own TV show and being a festival favourite, she returned home to Aotearoa. Since then she has become a household name after being a finalist on New Zealand’s Got Talent. A former Sea Shepherd, Greenpeace and WSPA activist, conservation and global peace are common themes in her music.
