Almira Zaky is an Indonesian 22-year-old R&B singer and songwriting soulstress from Virginia. Almira began her journey as a vocalist at a very young age and could be seen performing all around Washington, D.C. and the surrounding areas. After performing on stages for thousands throughout her youth, she went on to attend Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA to study Public Relations and Business. Throughout her time at VCU, she began gaining experience in the music industry by booking acts such as Travis Scott & Tory Lanez for her institution at just 19-years-old.
Almira recently released her debut single “Miss Me” which is one of the first singles set to release from her debut EP. This song tells the story of a young woman reminiscing on a past lover. He begs for her love back, but she is over the relationship and would rather focus on herself. As we listened to this track, we felt a ton of intense emotion from the very first word that Almira spoke. The song has an incredibly catchy hook, which is very easy to get stuck in the listener’s head. Check it out below.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
