The King of Exotic Cabaret takes K' Road! at Salon Mika. Get licked into blissful submission by the hottest line-up of international talent on the strip! Opening to the public on Valentine's Day February 14th running to the 23 February, Wednesday-Saturday nights from 8pm. 

Lounge around and vibrate in the newly renovated Switch Bar (upstairs, 309 Karangahape Road). Veteran of seven (7) Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, Mika brings snippets of his new works destined for international stages with a cast of live musicians, dancers, exotic performers and poets from several countries. Salon Mika is for Adults who like to love, laugh and live.

Experience the age old arts of Exotic Cabaret – think Josephine Baker and Grace Jones of yesterday – todays equivalent Janelle Monae and Lady Gaga – artists who don't compromise, welcome to Salon Mika www.mika.co.nz.

Mika, creator, innovator producer, fashionista - is fly, fresh, dope and very straight up. Mika says it like it is, always has really, that's hardly news! One part plastic Maori, one part lifestyle liberationist and one part icon. Actor, singer, dancer, image-maker.

3 Television series & specials (The Mika Show, RWC Mika's Aroha Mardi Gras), 8 Music releases and numerous film and Tv appearances. Mika is a master of the performing and digital arts “Art doesn't have boundaries, minds do.”
