In memory of the 30,000 Haitians that lost their lives during the 1937 Genocide in the Dominican Republic.


It’s said that music brings people together, and in the case of honeybird & the birdies this couldn’t more true. The Italian based psych-funk trio got their start in early 2007 when a friend of Paola “P-Birdie” Mirabella (drums) introduced her to Monique “honeybird” Mizrahi (lead vocals, charango). They knew instantly that there was an artistic connection and shortly after began making music together. The good vibes continued to flourish and the group found their third member Federico “walkietalkiebird” Camici (bass).

In early 2002 Monique moved from Los Angeles to Italy, began writing music and in the midst of her writing the nickname “honeybird” was born. Paola and Federico received their bird related nicknames shortly after joining the band. The band's sound is an exotic blend of sweet folk harmonies, nature and notorious beats (think The Jungle Book meets Pocahontas meets Iggy Pop). Their songwriting utilizes the verbalization of language as a tool and combines English, Japanese, Macedonian, Swedish, Arabic, Hebrew, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, and a variety of different dialects throughout their music. The entire trio sings and creates wildly entertaining choreographies that accompany their music. Their music merges world music energies with the playfulness of indie-folk, the angst of punk, the tropicalia of Brazil, and the enthusiasm of psychedelic-rock to create an eclectically innovative sound.

Since their humble beginning, the birdies have done plenty of wing stretching and touring throughout Europe. They’ve played numerous European festivals such as Eurosonic Noorderslaag (Holland), Cherchez La Femme Festival (Slovakia), Primavera Sound (Spain) and MaMA Event (France).

The group’s latest album You Should Reproduce was released on October 24th 2012 on Trovarobato Records and was produced by Enrico Gabrielli (Mariposa, Calibro 35, Mike Patton's Mondo Cane). It became the first album in Italy to be funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Their latest music video for “Perejil” focuses on the social injustices that occur in all societies around the world. The video was directed by Roman rock photographer Ilaria Magliocchetti Lombi and tells the story of the 1937 “Parsley Massacre” (genocide in the Dominican Republic). Her script for this video went on to be nominated for an Italian PIVI award for “best original script for a music video”.
