Biography

Miroslaw 'Miro' Kepinski - contemporary guitarist and sitar player. Graduating from a Classical Music school in Mlawa, Poland as Musician Instrumentalist (Classical Guitar), Miro then expanded his musical knowledge by enrolling at the Jazz faculty of the Academy of Music in Katowice, Poland. Upon graduation, Miro was awarded the title Musician the Artist in recognition of his studies and has gone on to enjoy a career playing a broad palette of musical styles including rock, blues and metal. Miro's collaborative work includes playing guitar with bands Carnal, Self-pollution and co-founded an art-rock group by the name of Yahatra. In 2007, after working on new material for Yahatra, Miro founded an experimental project called Meyatra. This new project showcases work of his own composition and improvisation, which are based on a strong rhythm section with guitar leading other instruments in a layered sound. His work- as solo or collaborative artist- has been well received by both print and online reviews.
