MASTER OF CEREMONIES

BEHRANG MIRI

BEHRANG MIRI

This year we have the honour of having Behrang Miri as our master of ceremonies once again! In addition to being a rapper, Behrang is often commissioned as a lecturer and debater with an exceptional ability to get people to listen to the issues he raises. As a musician, his distinguishing feature is his unique style of hip-hop with its disarming rhythms and eclectic sound. Behrang was born in Iran but lives in Sweden and is famed at least in part for his participation in the Melody Festival in 2013 and 2015.
