Biography: From Belly Dance to Rock n’Roll – The way of an Artist.

On a journey to the Orient Sonia fell in love with Oriental dance. Thereafter, she followed the call of adventure and set off with her backpack to become an Oriental dancer in Egypt. For many years the German danced successfully at the Red Sea and ran the „Al Manar“ Oriental dance school there for 7 years. Sonia was not only successful as an oriental dancer, but also beyond the borders of Egypt and almost every Egyptian has seen her face with the red beret on television. Her film role as „Rasha Lotfi Damanhouri“, the film daughter of Gamil Ratib in the Egyptian TV series „Sonbol baed el Million“ with Mohamed Sobhi, made her famous throughout the Arab world.

After the series, the artist remained true to dance and danced with her own music and folklore group in various hotels at the Red Sea. The highlight of her dancing career was in Tunisia, when she danced in front of more than 10,000 spectators in Carthage, the oldest amphitheater in the world. The dance pioneer has trained many dancers since then, and today ranks among the masters in the art of Oriental dance. After her return to Germany she organized Oriental events and dance workshops.

Sonia Asmahan also has been making an important contribution to the intercultural dialogue between German and Arabian culture for years. The artist has also a long-standing relationship with Egypt and travels there regularly. Sponsored by the city of Stuttgart, the artist staged in Germany two self-written dance theaters in Arabic language. „Saher essahra“ and „Cairocat“. At the opening of the Tut Anch Amun exhibition in the Old Castle in Stuttgart she danced and was approached by a volcanologist who enthusiastically compared her to a volcano. This inspired her so much that she wrote her first rock song „She’s a lady volcano“. „Lady Volcano“ was born.

Song „Let your body move“ by Lady Volcano & Spellfire Jamal


The name comes from Hip Isolation. ISO STYLE is a dance from the hip, a fusion of oriental dance and street dance. From this a young and intercultural dance style has emerged. For the artist Sonia Asmahan aka Lady Volcano, who created and developed the dance method, it is the dance of the 21st century.  She says, „It is healthy, easy to learn and very attractive, because of its inner-body nature. Therefore, ISO STYLE offers a quick sense of achievement because it is relatively easy to learn. The movements are back-friendly, healthy and aesthetic.“ A first dance tutorial will be released in October 2021.

On the anniversary of the death of Dr. Carl Benz on 4th of April 2021 we will publish the video clip to “ Benz Benz“. The idea for the song came from the astonishment of Lady Volcano that Harley riders can also be enthusiastic about a Mercedes-Benz. The Frenchman Michel Dagois combined his visit to Stuttgart with the purchase of a 6 cylinder „Benz“ SLK. He wrote the song lyrics to „Benz Benz Benz“. In cooperation with the  artists from Stuttgart Spellfire Jamal and Roman Voronenko, she produced the song and released it in September 2020 in her album „Fire Skull“.

Thanks to Winfried Seidel of the Carl Benz Automuseum, the video was shot last summer in the birthplace of the 1st car

Release – „Fire Skull“ is the 4th album of Lady Volcano which is dedicated to women. The new album therefore includes not only rocky, but also danceable funky songs. The artist sings about the mental processes a woman has to go through during her life. For some of her songs she was inspired by the book “Woman who run with the wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. The American writer and psychoanalyst says that a woman can only be strong, healthy, creative and happy if she can find the roots of her instinctive nature – the “Fire Skull”.

The world changes rapidly. We are living in a difficult time at the moment. The corona pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we deal with each other. Many suffer from the quarantine regulations, the double burden and are afraid of existence. Many see their fundamental rights curtailed and oppose the restrictions imposed by governments on their personal freedom. However, we all have in common that we are looking for solutions to solve the problems. It is now particularly important and necessary to have understanding and still to express opinions constructively.

The Corona crisis shows us how vulnerable we are. We need each other especially in crises. So even if we keep distance, we can feel what’s going on between us. So let’s have more empathy for each other. Let’s express gratitude and encourage each other: „We will do whatever it takes and go through it. We will go on and not give up“.

The song „Whatever it takes“ not only contains this message, it is also a thank you to all those who stand by their fellow human beings in this crisis. The wonderful music was composed by the pianist Roman Voronenko.
