MIYAVI Playing Live

What’s up, LA?

I moved to the States five years ago and then I actually had a hard time.

I came here with my family.

I grew up in Japan. I had no knowledge or experience, you know, to be here in America.

But, um… This country welcomed us. I really, really appreciate that. You know, the generosity this country has.

Now, fans at this time we ask you to please rise and kindly remove your hats and join in the singing of our national anthem. Please welcome back, internationally recognized Japanese guitarist and singer-songwriter, MIYAVI.

Ladies and gentleman, MIYAVI.
