A 29-track double CD with a 24-page booklet

The reviewers continue to praise Mahinarangi as ... "a breathtaking singer" .

"an extraordinary voice"... "A wonderful vocalist with an intricate, jazzy sense of phrasing" ... Mahinarangi Tocker can deliver the goose-flesh tingling sensation of witnessing greatness" ......

the mongrel in me is a 29-song collection about love, loss, desire and heritage that comes from Mahinarangi's emotional and musical expressions with respect to her Maori, Hebrew and Celtic ancestry.

For this recording Mahinarangi has assembled all of the musicians she has been performing with recently at festivals such as WOMAD and NZ International Arts Festival ... Shona Laing (vocals/piano), James Wilkinson (vocals/guitars), David Downes (piano, drums, vocals) Anahera Higgins (vocals/bodhran), Ashley Brown (cello) and Denny Stanway (vocals/ bodhran) and Jimmy Young (northumbrian pipes, bodhran, tin whistle, vocals) of 'Rua" fame. Also appearing on four of the tracks is prominent composer and trumpet player extraordinaire, Ross Harris.
