Mara Kölpin is a german singer-songwriter. Having grown up on the countryside in the north of Germany, she is now based in Berlin. MARA has been songwriting and composing since an early age and after having played violin as child, she has started teaching herself playing piano and guitar.
Playing the guitar is one of her greatest passions and used as her main accompaniment in her most recent tracks. In her music and lyrics, MARA expresses personal thoughts regarding society nowadays as well as philosophical and spiritual topics. To be present in the moment, connected to the simplicity of being and of life itself, is one of the main subjects that give her music a certain touch of lightness and ease.
MARA is using the loop-station to add harmonies and instrumental solos to her live performances as well as a percussion pad, which give her concerts a unique variety of different sound-facettes, suitable for dancing as well as for dreamy listening.
Mainly in Berlin, she's already been playing on various events like EcstaticDance, SurrenderDance, LiebeTanzen, ZusammenKomm, Kakao & Mantra and has been assisting musically in different seminars and workshops. She sensitively adapts her music to the present atmosphere, playing meditative soundhealings as well as uplifting danceable music and also holds space for singing circles. MARA's dominant intent when sharing her music, is to create a space of connection and presence, where the listener, dancer or participant is allowed to be just the way they are and to surrender to the moment.
