She studied music at the Rimon School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, released two solo albums, and collaborated with many international artists: Noa, Idan Raichel, Andrea Boccelli, Bobby McFerrin, and more.

As an actress, Mira participated in numerous theatre productions, her most memorable part being Eliza Doolittle in the musical “My fair lady”. She starred on the highly-rated series “Arab Labor” and hosted several tv shows. She also created and co-wrote the TV drama “Muna”. Mira is an Artivista.
