A New York Evening With Awich

     

In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to present an intimate conversation with Awich followed by a performance at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY. The conversation, moderated by Jamie Dominguez, will include a discussion about the creative process of her latest project, The Union, her career, and more. 

Awich is part of the many artists to be featured in the GRAMMY Museum’s New York City program series, which includes bringing a slate of the GRAMMY Museum’s renowned GRAMMY In The Schools Education Programs and Public Programs to the East Coast. “A New York Evening With…” is generously supported by the Dawn and Brian Hoesterey Family Foundation.  

ABOUT AWICH 

Hailed as the queen of Japanese hip-hop, Awich is the living embodiment of all that makes the genre so culturally vital. Over the course of her boundary-pushing career, the Okinawa-born artist has balanced real-life storytelling and razor-sharp commentary, larger-than-life personality and unguarded humanity, forward-thinking musicianship and a fierce devotion to her heritage and homeland—a Japanese prefecture whose troubled history and near-mystical beauty have served as an endless inspiration for the rapper/singer/songwriter. As she reaches global stardom on the strength of her music’s emotional potency and limitless originality, Awich now moves forward with her mission of uplifting her community while fearlessly speaking her truth.

The latest body of work from Awich, her powerhouse 2023 album The Union delves deeper into her roots than ever before, merging wildly experimental beats with the luminous and nuanced sounds of traditional Okinawan music. Not only a profound creative breakthrough, The Union helped to fulfill a more personal ambition for Awich. “Ever since I encountered hip-hop, it’s been my dream to create something that represents where I’m from, like so many of the artists I admire,” says Awich, who delivers her lyrics in Okinawan, Japanese, and English. “I want to tell the world about Okinawa—partly because I believe the island has an energy that everyone needs to experience, but also because I want the people in Okinawa to feel empowered and proud of where they’re from.”
