Singer, Youth Coordinator, Mentor Manager
Rich layered harmonies, minimal percussive production and thoughtful narrative lyricism are the hallmarks of the ArA Harmonic sound.
Since moving to London from Bristol in 2013 ArA has been mesmerising audiences with her performances that draw heavily on 90’s RnB. Her first studio-recorded release “Bad Habits” was sponsored by Mobos x Help Musicians, with ArA carrying on a lineage of strong female artists who have pushed boundaries and inspired generations to believe in their magic and rise to their individual and collective challenges.
ArA has an extensive career in theatre & music having trained and worked at The Bristol Old Vic theatre, performing & directing multiple theatre shows. When she moved to London she joined the Roundhouse, becoming a resident artist and working in their studios as a Youth Support Worker. She is currently working for Big Local as their Youth Opportunities Coordinator, shaping their youth program as well as being the Mentor Manager for GUAVA.
2019 saw ArA write her first play ‘100 years of Black British History’ which she toured in South London libraries over the course of 3months. Always keeping busy and challenging herself ArA has definitely cemented herself as one of the most hard working up & coming talents in the game.
