Sunday, February 19th | 8 pm | GCCR Event Hall | $12 in advance
GCCR welcomes SONiA and disappear fear back to Richmond. This is a rare appearance of SONiA and the band, including one of Richmond’s favorite drummers, Debbie Flood. Come support GCCR’s music program and hear a fantastic one of a kind artist and activist!
“There is only one SONiA and disappear fear … SONiA is a singer-songwriter, an activist, an artist. She writes in the styles of folk, blues, rock and country, of course that depends on what country; she sings in Spanish, Hebrew and Arabic as well as her native American English. SONiA is known as a protest singer though her songs are mostly about love and understanding. Her lyrics and melodies reflect her simple truth – when you disappear fear between people what you have is LOVE. Her songs are strong but not angry.”
SONiA and disappear fear have gained a devoted fan base in countries around the world — singing solo as a troubadour or with her 3 to 7 piece band backing her up. They have sold over 500,000 albums and continue to gain new fans every year as they perform at venues, festivals and theatres. Their powerful honesty touches the hearts and minds of people of many social and ethnic backgrounds, underpinned as they are by the belief that people are people and love is love. This is the essence of the disappear fear ideology. The disappear fear sound is a culmination of rhymes and rhythms from America and across the seas.
