Berklee's music video series Two Track features the college's student artists and musicians in an intimate setting with only one microphone and continuous camera takes. Designed for Berklee's YouTube channel, the virtual concert series launched in September and runs every Wednesday throughout the fall semester at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Each recording session will revolve around a single theme that is expressed by the artist, either through their track selection or a short storytelling segment. Octobers theme is transformation and November will highlight gratitude. These sessions will display the raw talent of Berklee artists as well as create community around common themes, shared experiences, and emotion.

Sheila del Bosque

On October 6, Cuban flutist Sheila del Bosque, accompanied by keyboardist Harold Charon and drummer Cristi n Tamblay, performed Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo's Manteca and an original song, Cuentos del aire.

One of the most in-demand young flutists in her native country, del Bosque blends contemporary and traditional Afro-Cuban sounds with European and jazz influences. After receiving a full-tuition scholarship, del Bosque enrolled at Berklee in January 2018 and has since shared the stage with Omar Hakim, Paquito D'Rivera, Danilo P rez, Berta Rojas, and Aida Cuevas, among others.

Watch Sheila del Bosque perform Cuentos del aire and Manteca:

Emi McSwain

Boston-based singer, songwriter, and pianist Emi McSwain performed an original song, Rain, and My Favorite Things by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II on October 13, accompanied by guitarists Carrick McCullough and John Brake.

McSwain's music is inspired by the universal emotions of sadness, love, rejection, and growth, blending traditional folk, indie-pop, and jazz fusion.

Alice Macedo

Alice Macedo, a Berklee student majoring in music business/management, performed a cover of Emo es by Roberto Carlos and an original song, Light, with her trio on October 20. Eduardo Resende accompanied her on guitar, with Carlos Ruiz on piano and keyboard.

Macedo, who began performing at the age of 6 in her native Brazil, is influenced by a wide array of musical genres, from bossa nova, samba, and MPB (m sica popular brasileira), to pop, R&B, and soul.

Maya Rae

Maya Rae, a singer from Vancouver, British Columbia, has been singing professionally since age 12 and recorded her first album, Sapphire Birds, featuring jazz and classic pop standards, at age 13. In 2020, her sophomore album, Can You See Me?, was nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards in the categories of Young Performer(s) and New/Emerging Artist(s).

She wrapped up Octobers Two Track schedule, performing Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now and Bob Dylan's The Times They Are a-Changin.
