MIYAVI is coming to Anime Weekend Atlanta 2018

By May 11, 2018Guest Announcements

AWA and FAKE STAR, USA are bringing Samurai Guitarist MIYAVI to his first convention appearance this decade!

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 “slap style,” which is like no other. With multiple successful world tours under his belt, MIYAVI gathered attention from other artists and creators in the field, becoming more prolific in his career. Most notably he worked with Angelina Jolie in the 2014 film “Unbroken”, making his Hollywood debut acting as “The Bird”. Inspired by the message of peace from his acting debut in “Unbroken”, MIYAVI became an UNHCR ambassador to take action.

Now, MIYAVI continues to make his own path for his artistic career. He started collaborating with Asian internet sensations 88rising in January 2018, releasing covers of smash-hits and freestyle battles. He caused an uproar when casted as Byakuya in the anime-based Bleach live-action movie, set to release July 2018. As he continues his world tour, he has maintained a monthly campaign of high profile single releases with no signs of stopping.
