Sonia Aimy is all about movement; it’s in her voice, performance and modus operandi for life. She is a progressive, innovative artist in an emerging world music scene in Toronto (and abroad!) that blends African, Italian and Canadian culture through her art.
“Con i piedi per terra,” she says. “You are a servant to the earth through your art. Once you understand your purpose – you need to get your nia, your purpose. The spirit of the art leads and guides you. The work will speak for itself.”
If you’ve had the opportunity to experience Sonia perform live, like I have, then you know her words ring true. Here are a few shots I captured at her stunning performance at Lula Lounge for BanTOR Radio on November 5, 2015 in Toronto.
