Ara is capable of leading her cast along a single cultural path on stage and also in transition from one stream of African heritage to another on the emphatic lead of thunderous percussion. She is also a must-watch soloist. Her enchanting performance in this regard dwells heavily on abstract and mystery. Ara comes full-blown with her enabling spirit when set alone on stage. Her thoughts sink deep into rivers of sonorous bliss as she cryptically withdraws her concentration from the world before her to enhance her energies and swiftness in the constituent moments of her super-enchanting solo, sometimes brought back to reality with soft and simple sign-offs by a fluid scintilla of modern and traditional percussion.

Initiatives

Off her highly demanding professional schedule, Ara finds time to conceive and build ideas that tally with her copious passion for society. The African girl-child is faced with many a heavy odd in her formative years.

As an African girl-child growing-up in Africa, Ara had a lingering taste of surviving at the mercy of the odds! Having been able to rise to a place of privilege in the same society, one of her prominent give-back initiatives is The Girl-Child Project. This exercise focuses on facilitating the education and healthcare of less-privileged young girls.

Extending from this on-going project is The Girl-Child Book Series which basically is about writing and publishing a girl-child-specific book series for female pupils of primary and secondary schools. The underlining idea is to use the books to transfer knowledge that is capable of assisting young girls to make the right decisions as they grow up in the face of the challenging and temptations of the pressures of life.

Other projects lined up for execution in due course by Ara are:
Inspire Me (a special project focused on street-kids), Mother ‘n’ Child (anti-malaria campaign), Ara Empowerment (special support for needy mothers),Sustainable Water Development For Africa (special alliance with major organizations to provide potable water to selected African on the African continent)
