Mishka Adams’s aesthetic roots include the literary, visual and musical arts. The daughter of Filipina visual artist, Agnes Arellano and British writer, Michael Adams, was born on May 19th 1984 in Manila. At her tender age she was already associated with the Philippine literary scene, when her dad was publishing the Caracoa literary journal along with the Philippine Literary Arts Council. Mishka does her share of writing as well, of poems that later turn into songs. “A lot of my songs starts out as poetry. My dad was a big influence on me” – she enthuses.
