MIYU Porando (no) Musume is the name of the duo that was created from the initiative of the parents of the sisters Kate and Eve Bronowski. The girls made their debut in 1998 on the first Sailor Moon Day in Warsaw, where they were a hit with the audience of manga and anime fans from Poland. The band has given several other appearances at concerts in Poland, such as Cosmic Manga I, Cosmic Manga II, Cosmic Manga III Prologue, the second Sailor Moon Day, the third Sailor Moon Day, First Impact, and Mega Manga Christmas Party...not to mention their Child's Day and Christmas concerts. They all paved the way to record to the first single.
Their first European-scale debut took place at Animagic 2000 in Koblenz, Germany where Miyu makes an annual appearance. Next was Bonenkai in Karlsruhe and then Connichi in Ludwigshafen. The girls found their greatest success in concert with Yoko Kanno, the composer of music from anime such as Record of Lodoss War, Escaflowne, and Cowboy Bebop.
