Nigerian-Born via Italy Singer-Songwriter, Sonia Aimy To Launch New Album June 14


 

Nigerian-born via Italy singer, Sonia Aimy, will launch her new 10-track Light-Imole album on June 14 this year at the El Mocambo,  Fresh Angle International, has gathered.

Istituto Italiano di Cultura, while making the disclosure in an electronic statement sent to This Newspaper, explained that the album is a fusion of storytelling inspired by Sonia’s birthplace, Nigeria and her global experiences and perspectives on life, events and aspirations.

The statement, noted: “With her inimitable, velvety voice, Nigerian-born via Italy singer, songwriter, actress, and activist Sonia is the quintessential embodiment of contemporary African world music. Her sound blends Afro-jazz, Afrobeat, highlife, and spiritual in easy flowing, yet virtuosic performances. Her irresistible rhythms and melody and infectious joie de vivre unite audiences of diverse backgrounds.

“Fluent in English, Italian, French, and several African dialects, Sonia has been singing in public since age 11 in her native Nigeria, where she absorbed the influences of her mother’s native Bini people and the Muslim and Christian cultures around her.

“She took music and theatre training in Italy and performed throughout the country and in much of Europe. She has performed concerts with African musical legends such as Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela, and appeared on many theatre stages, including in a 14-year run with the National Theatre of Turin as the first Black Cinderella. Among her numerous film and TV credits was a key role in Louis Nero’s short film, Il Mistero di Dante. She has also scored music for theatre and film.

“No Sneaking” is the first single from the 10-track Light-Imole. The song is a reminder to every one of us that no matter what we do and the situation that we find ourselves in, we must always do our best to be truthful, fair, and respectful of others. It is a reminder that whatever goes around, comes around – it boomerangs. A behaviour of sincerity and truth is your rock for trust and credibility that will sell you beyond your expectations.

The song was inspired by Sonia’s memories of a childhood favorite called “the circle game.” “It was the perfect inspiration I needed to create, arrange, and sing this song,” Sonia explains. “The sound, melody, and groove all came to my head effortlessly. My cultural identity undoubtedly continues to be one of my sources of creation in my artistic work”.

 

“Light-Imole was produced by Sonia Aimy, Jerry Harrison-Uke, Peter Lasisi, Piero De Prete and Eddie Bullen, and it features Esther Jane Willow, a MI’Kmaq singer songwriter on a track titled “Sel Senapa”.

“Sonia will be accompanied by her band members, some of the best African musicians in the GTA. Please join us for this musical journey as we celebrate the release of Light-Imole.

“This event is sponsored by Istituto Italiano di Cultura with the generous help of community partners ICFF, AWA and Saimy's Art.”
