Sonja, over the past few years, has managed and added a plus quality as an activist and DJ in Lisbon. Alongside the label she founded, LABAREDA, through which she develops a careful author’s work with rather unpredictable registers, Sonja is also part of FUNGO, a platform for cultural and musical intervention that, together with Just Jaeckin, Citizen Kane, and CVLT (Discos Capablanca) is grounded in Lisbon’s more experimental electronic sound. Sonja is also a host at Rádio Quântica.
LABAREDA (established 2014 by Sonja), is a label based in Portugal focusing on new geographies and maps of beats and sounds. LABAREDA’s first release, Xina Eletronica, is an author’s edition of electronic music exclusively made in China.

LABAREDA VOL I e LABAREDA VOL II, the label’s second release is a two volume compilation showcasing female Portuguese artists/producers and ranges from ambient, drone, house and techno. Labareda Radio Emissions is a monthly radio show presented on Rádio Quântica.
