About the Artist
Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, Almira Ara is a 20 year-old songwriter, singer, and producer that focuses on molding rock and R&B together to create a genre that is truest to their creations. Ara grew up learning drums at three years old, then started singing and writing little songs at five years old. Growing up with a musical family, Ara was exposed to artists ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Aaliyah, and Queen to The Internet. Currently, Almira Ara is in Boston, Massachusetts, where they are pursuing music. They are currently a member of the inaugural Folk Collective at the legendary Club Passim and a co-founder of The Fae Richards Collective: a collective that is actively creating a community for Black queer creatives to be seen, be heard, and thrive. They are currently working on an EP that is set to release in the near future that will be their first full-length project.

About Two Track
Two Track is a music video series designed for Berklee’s YouTube and social media channels that features artists in an intimate setting with only one microphone and continuous camera takes. Each recording session will revolve around a single theme (i.e., connection, love, dreams) that can be expressed by the artist either through their track selection or through a short storytelling segment that will be recorded as part of the performance. The videos in this series will premiere at specific dates and times, but if you miss the premiere, each video will be public on the channel in continuity.
