His flutes are world-renowned and have been displayed at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian. Mirabal has twice been named Native American Music Awards' Artist of the Year, and received the Songwriter of the Year award three times. He was featured in Grammy Award-winning album, Sacred Ground-a Tribute to Mother Earth in 2006 for Best Native American Music Album. He has recently also won 2007 "Best Male Artist" of the Year from the NAMMY's. ( He is also the 2008 Grammy Award Winner for Best Native American Album of the Year). Raised traditionally by his mother and grandparents on Taos Pueblo, Mirabal spoke Tiwa at home and began making flutes at the age of 19. In school, he had learned how to play clarinet, saxophone, piano, and drums, but found his true musical voice in the traditional Native American flute. He met the renowned Native American flute player R. Carlos Nakai as a young man and was greatly inspired by him. In the late '80s he moved to New York City, playing in a multicultural band made up of a Senegalese guitarist, a Cape Verdean drummer and Haitian keyboardist. There, Mirabal immersed himself in the sound of hip-hop, funk and R&B, which would inform his later trademark music. He recorded an independent debut album in 1988, and went on to land contract with Warner Wes
