Loopy musical magic
Mihirangi creates a big band sound of earth-shaking bass lines, ska chops, jazzy riffs, soaring solos and beat boxing with the power of her incredible voice and a Roland RC50 loop pedal.
Mihirangi has performed with Public Enemy, Sly & Robbie, Michael Franti, Lee Scratch Perry, Resin Dogs and Arrested Development – some big names there.
This Maori woman attracted big crowds and broke CD sales records all over Canada during her recent tour.
Earlier this year she played WOMADelaide and WOMAD NZ . She also did spine-tingling shows at The Dreaming in Queensland.
Mihiringi is really an amazing act (and you won’t see me using ‘amazing’ often in these pages) and you have the chance to experience her amazing show when she plays the Nimbin Hotel next Thursday, December 24, at 7.30pm.
Having been a solo performer for four years, Mihirangi is currently performing with her new ‘band’.
DJ Katch from the Resin Dogs will be adding cuts, scratches and samples, while killer drummer Elvis Aljus (Kate Ceberano, The Bamboos, Renee Geyer, Ross Wilson, Deni Hines) will be supplying an even higher level of energy to Mihirangi’s already lively beat-boxing and percussion-laced shows.
A show you should see.
