James Mangohig

James Mangohig aka Kuya James is both an ARIA nominated producer and artist living on Larrakia land in Darwin, Northern Territory.

The first born son to a Filipino father and a Dutch mother, James would earn his stage name early in life simply by being the eldest. “Kuya” in the national Filipino tongue means “older brother”.

Starting out as a bass player in church, he went on to play 100s of gigs with bands of many different genres, leading him to joining a Hip Hop collective in the late 90s and realising that he wanted to do more with the music than just bass lines; he wanted to produce. He has made records with many artists including Emily Wurramara, Tasman Keith, Caiti Baker, B2M, A.B Original and Daniel Johns amongst others. With a twenty year career behind him, in the past five years, James has been committed to projects and new performance work which centre around Asian/Australian stories and are collaborations with Asian/Australian artists.
