Her thesis was on Ona Laietana's Music, an underground genre from Barcelona, famous in the 70s, that was marginalized by the establishment. The absence of bibliography led Mireia to interview many musicians from this period.

Mireia studied with bassists Jordi Ruiz, Ignasi Zamora, Gary Willis, Josep Pérez Cucurella; the pianist Ignasi Terraza, and mentor drummer Lucas van Merwijk. Mireia worked as a bass player in bands, musical theatre, and a circus company in jazz, funk, pop and world music.
