MIYAVI has been chosen as Japan’s first Good Will Amabassador for the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
“I’m very very honored to receive this and become an ambassador of #UNHCR for refugee crisis,: said the musician. “I here promise to do my best. But I cannot do this by myself. I need your voice, I need your power, I need your support as well. I hope we can learn, think and accomplish the missions all together. Let’s rock for the future.”
MIYAVI made his first visit to learn about UNHCR’s frontline work in 2015, travelling to Lebanon and performing his song “The Others” with refugees he met there. The music video was released in 2016 – directed and produced by UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie and MIYAVI – featuring refugees from around the globe. MIYAVI visited Lebanon again in 2016 to learn more about refugees’ experiences, as well as Thailand in 2017 to meet Karen refugees from Myanmar.
