MONIQUE MIZRAHI

From her California roots and early love of punk, coming into her creative own in Italy and now Brooklyn, Honeybird (multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Monique Mizrahi) has chased more powerful engagement with her identity and with the world’s music. She transforms (her) self-hate into self-love while advocating bisexual awareness. As a songwriter and performer, she merges the charango (a South American string instrument) and bass with languages and music of her tradition, creating the sticky queer sound that is Honeybird. In May 2015 she released an album "Out Comes Woman" and is playing each day from release until the following year, marking each show on her facebook fan page, it began with #1/365 and is now at #126/365.
