Soundcheck and Tiny Desk, WXPN’s Folkadelphia, and Breakthru Radio in NYC.
Miwi was recently featured in an in-depth interview/concert review in the Omaha
Magazine. “As soon as Miwi La Lupa’s melodies hit ears, listeners succumb to the
indie-folk dynamo. Seduced by his poignant lyrics, the roar of bar chatter fell
silent during a recent Slowdown performance. There he stood: tall, brilliant, and gently strumming his guitar.”
