PROFILE

Miyavi is gaining recognition around the world for his "slap style", unconventional style of playing the electric guitar not with a pick, but with his fingers. He has 8 successful world tours under his belt, totaling more than 350 shows in about 30 countries.

In July 2019, he played the U.S. national anthem at the first-pitch ceremony of Major League Baseball at Dodger Stadium. His performance fascinated the audience and became a hot topic in both Japan and USA.

Miyavi made his acting debut in Hollywood with the movie "Unbroken" (screened in Japan in 2016) directed by Angelina Jolie. After that, he appeared in two Japanese movies "BLEACH" and "Gangoose" as well as two foreign movies "Kong: Skull Island" and "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" (released in Japan and America on October 18, 2019). He also modeled for well-known brands including Yohji Yamamoto and Y-3 and recently has been selected as the face of the worldwide campaign of Moncler Beyond. His activities in various fields attract much attention.
Miyavi also arranged the Main Theme for the movie "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" (Japan Version) and produced music for the HONDA commercial. In addition, he created songs for SMAP and was featured in the works of various artists. In recent years, Miyavi has been gathering attention from other artists and creators from all over the world.

In 2017, Miyavi became Japan's first official Goodwill Ambassador of UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).

In April 2020, he released his new album "Holy Nights".
He also launched a new project "MIYAVI Virtual LIVE". Even during the coronavirus pandemic, he keeps on moving forward and uses "streaming" as a new form of expression.

In June 2020, he was featured in the advertisement of GUCCI's collection "Gucci Off the Grid collection" which was launched around the world, and became the first Japanese celebrity to be selected for GUCCI's advertisement.

The "Samurai Guitarist MIYAVI" who keeps on challenging new things in the world and carrying out his activities without stopping is one of the most promising artists in Japan.
