    Watch Japanese Superstar Miyavi Perform for MTV Iggy - It's an exclusive live acoustic performance

    MTV Iggy is proud to present an exclusive live acoustic performance by Japanese rock megastar Miyavi this week on MTVIggy.com. The feature includes both a never-before-seen live acoustic performance with "What's My Name?" and "Strong," as well as a behind-the-scenes interview.

    Miyavi's eclectic brand of guitar-driven rock melds acoustic pop, blues and hip hop and has led him to mega-stardom both in Japan and around the globe. A visual kei artist, Miyavi's electrifying performances are colored by the highly stylized Japanese rock movement's flamboyant costumes, make-up and costumes, often likened to glam rock and heavy metal's aesthetics. Miyavi is a self-categorized "samurai guitarist" and has been in Japan's rock scene for over 13 years. Having begun his trajectory in the rock stratosphere as a guitarist and songwriter for J-rock band Dué le Quartz, Miyavi has since toured as a solo artist and released seven studio albums and five compilations. His latest album, What's My Name presented an evolution in his unique style of in-your-face Japanese rock.
