Sonia Kreitzer is a singer, songwriter, sound healer and facilitates music in ceremonial spaces. Based out of Los Angeles, she records music under the name "Doe Paoro," and has released 4 full-length records. She has toured with legendary artists such as the Gipsy Kings and collaborated with artists such as Peter, Bjorn & Jon, RAC, Monogem, Son Little & Justin Vernon. Her music has been featured on NPR, BBC, Pitchfork, Triple J Radio and in films and television. Her driving inspiration in music is the belief in its power as a universal source of healing and awakening consciousness.
Sonia has studied Tibetan Opera singing at the Tibetan Institute for Performing Arts in Mcleod Ganj, India. She has toured all over the world - giving concerts, facilitating soundbaths, and offering music in sacred spaces. She has a certification as a yoga teacher and reiki training, and has also recorded guided meditations which are available on Apple Music and Insight Timer.
Through her own experience with her voice, Sonia realized that trauma often gets imprinted at the vocal level when it goes unexpressed. The voice is a powerful tool for processing and alchemizing pain through creativity and expression. Sonia developed a seven-week online course called "Activating the Voice," which guides an exploration of the history of one's voice through embodied vocalization practices, and supports a reclamation of the joy of singing and brave self-expression.
She teaches these courses online to groups, in addition to working with private clients on vocal transformation. She also leads international singing and healing retreats.
