3SongsBonn caught the Band BonnAfrica and vocalist Sonja Richter in action at the Gay/Lesbian Against Aids Summer Festival in Bonn.

Excellent rhythms and poignant songs with names like ‘Justice & Peace’ and ‘Sweet Mama’ – Songs celebrating love for Justice, Peace and Mothers everywhere.  Most poignant of all was the reading out of Aids Victims names followed by a moving version of ‘Amazing Grace’ from Sonja Richter during which , as if on cue, a few raindrops fell from the until then sunny sky – to vanish again in sunshine afterwards.  A reminder that there are people behind the statistics, and that Music, even if it can’t cure Aids,  is still powerful medicine for the Soul.
