Sony Hall, New York City’s new premiere music venue that uses state-of-the-art technology to present world-renowned performing artists across all musical genres, hosts Japanese singer, songwriter, guitarist MIYAVI in concert.
Known as the “Samurai Guitarist,” Miyavi is gaining recognition around the world for his unconventional style of playing the guitar—not with a pick, but with his fingers and his unique “slap style.” He has six successful world tours under his belt, totaling more than 250 shows in 30 countries. His self-titled album, Miyavi, was released in Japan in June 2013 and is now being released in Asia, Europe, and North America.
Miyavi is also a music producer. His music has been featured on television commercials for brands such as Uniqlo, Toshiba, Nissan, Lotte Co., Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., among others.
In recent years Miyavi has branched out into acting, debuting in the 2014 film Unbroken, directed by Angelina Jolie, and subsequently appearing in Kong: Skull Island and Stray. The United Nations appointed him a Goodwill Ambassador of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 2017.
