Today is the day– The single “Star” from Berra’s upcoming debut EP titled ‘Move It Boy’ is out and I highly urge you to drop everything and check it out. Berra is the solo project of Roba Djalleta but this single proves that Berra is so much more than just a solo act. There’s power and passion that runs deep throughout this track and the rest and I just had to learn more about this amazing DC-based artist.

What’s the worst concert you’ve ever been to and why?
Growing up in Atlanta definitely had a lot of privileges when it came to good show/concert experiences, people are very cool and nice and good at what they do. The best concert/show i’ve been to was one right before Covid hit in Atlanta and everyone danced so hard that the floor caved in on itself.

It’s a song filled with peace, love, and purity; a song that will satisfy all earthly and human desires.
