Behrang Miri has established himself as a great multitasker with a mind blowing eclectic sound and a unique approach on the music world scene where he delivers rhymes in innovative ways that are in short supply these days. Behrang Miri’s lyrics are simultaneously engaging and soulful. His sound is a mix of folklore music, intriguing storytelling and melodies from the Middle East, South America, Sweden and North Africa in a futuristic fusion. Behrang Miri was groundbreaking when he became the first artist in Sweden to be Grammy nominated with a Arabic influenced song Amout Aleyk. With his live band consisting of oud, violin, darbouka, congas and guitar he delivers nothing like the typical hip hop artist. Behrang Miri has a unique quality to rock every crowd no matter the current circumstances, a performance that doesn’t leave any one untouched. By many he considered to be one of Sweden’s and Scandinavias best freestyle MC and his uncon-ventional way of interacting with the audience has revolutionized the performing arts scene.
