Miwata is an artist who has become an indispensable part of the German-speaking music world.
Starting out as an MC, singer & rapper in Karlsruhe, he secured a firm place in the reggae scene with his mixtape "Auf dem Weg Richtung Sonne" in 2012. As a much-booked artist, Miwata toured the entire German-speaking region and played his way into the hearts of his listeners. Whether with the extremely popular "Akustik Session" (2015) or with his "Nicht ohne Grund" EP (2017), which brought Miwata attention far beyond the reggae cosmos with the single "Vielleicht" (Maybe), which has been streamed millions of times: the music shows how fluid the genre boundaries of his work are, how versatile the artist is.
The best example is the debut album "Eucalyptus", released in 2019, on which Miwata now increasingly produced himself. Above all, the album shows that Miwata wants to make a difference beyond his music. For example, he donated the budget for a music video for the single "Phantasiewelt" to Viva con Agua and used it to finance the construction of a well in Ethiopia. For the hit single "Oh Baby", he collaborated with Jamaican superstar Jahmiel and achieved over 11 million streams. Sold-out headlining tours and numerous festival appearances followed.
In 2020, his acoustic album was followed by "Akustik Session II" and Miwata released more singles like "Ohne Dich". Fresh crisp hip hop/trap style meets anthemic pop melodies, dancehall flows and guitars. Miwata's voice touches with soulful and critical lyrics.
