The first daughter of Kairuku musician Jessie Joe, Irau obviously did not miss the music gene.

She recorded her first song at age two, and continued singing her way up.

She even performed with a mixture of Sanguma band and Profile Unity, landing gigs at events including the Melanesian Arts Festival.

For a 14-year-old, Irau’s voice is very well developed and perfectly modulated similar to a professional singer with years of experience.

Her opportunity is the exposure to this creativity very early on in her life.
