Mirabai Kukathas is a storyteller. A playwright, guitarist, and (maybe most importantly) a singer/songwriter, she loves nothing more than telling an absurd story with an honest emotional core. The songs of this genre-blending “floral folk goddess” are characterized by vulnerable lyrics, walls of harmony, collaboration with friends, and a refreshing blend of irony and sincerity. Her art is absurd and funny and often a little sad, as are all things in the eyes of Mirabai. She was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, although she also grew up in her mother’s native Malaysia. She's garnered such honors as the Robert Bloch Award for Music, placing at MoPop's SoundOff, being named one of the Gates Foundation's 100 Local Changemakers, winning the Young Playwrights Project (twice), and being chosen for the Seattle Opera's Creation Lab. Mirabai’s art is an act of healing; a confusing celebration of her culture, identity, and life. With lots of love, effort, and community, she works to create her own unique sound to tell her own unique story.
