While having dinner at Harlem’s Red Rooster, I overheard a woman say her 1st single comes out October 11. Meet Amira, “My Father is Middle Eastern and my Mother is West African, I was born and raised in Australia.” She now calls Harlem home. Our conversation covers why she moved to NYC, differences between Australia and America, artists that influenced her world pop style, her favorite NYC neighborhood, when she knew she wanted to be an artist and how she is marketing her album independently.
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
