| When? December 6 | Event? Music concert | Venue? The Dragon Hotel & Resort
A legendary house and pop, music star after ruling the charts across party capitals of the world, makes her debut in the Kingdom this month.
A DJ, singer, musician and a survivor, Sonia Clarke — or Sonique as the world knows her — brings her magical experience and energy to blow you away, at the Dragon Hotel & Resort on December. Spinning her set-list of international chartbusters such as Feel so good and Sky, the artist will deliver an electrifying performance never seen before in the region.
Sonique’s popularity as a DJ was partly helped by her unique improvised singing. She was a regular face, behind the console, in clubs such as Cream and Gatecrasher and the resident DJ at Manumission in Ibiza for two years. For over two decades, the artist has made many dance to her tunes in countries like Germany, USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Australia, Italy and Norway. After touring over 40 countries she returned to Ibiza earlier this year for another residency at Bora Bora.
What makes Sonique so unique as a DJ is that she has blended her powerful and emotive singing abilities with a natural talent for mixing, creating a unique club atmosphere. She will cast her spell as soon as she steps up to the decks and picks up the microphone there’s an instant connection with the crowd.
Apart from the electrifying parties and being on the road, Sonique’s involved in writing, recording and remixing songs. These are mainly dance-orientated and melody-based tracks which often become club favourites and pop-chart hits.
She shot to fame as lead vocalist of the 80s electronic dance band S Express, racking up a series of top 40 hits before embarking upon a highly successful solo career.
In 2001, the singer and DJ won a number of prestigious awards including Best British Female at the 2001 Brit Awards ceremony, with fellow nominees being Dido, PJ Harvey and Sade.
At the 46th Ivor Novello Awards the same year, Sonique won the International Hit of the Year for her single t Feels So Good.
She has recorded four solo albums and has released more than 13 singles.
There have also been several collaborations with artists such as William Orbit, Josh Wink and Tomcraft. A strong-willed fighter, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and after a long treatment was declared clear by the doctors.
The sensation is in the Kingdom doing what she does the best — party, and teaching the world how to have a good time. The tickets to the concert are priced at BD15 and private tables start from BD180.
