In the energy she gives on stage, or when she talks about her songs, Pongo always refers to her childhood in Angola. She systematically comes back to this little girl from Luanda who protects herself from the war of the adults thanks to music and dance, in this bubble that surrounds her. That sweet vertigo. Exiled to Lisbon, she will put aside the chaos to keep the perfumes, the colours, the memories of her childhood deep inside her. And above all the sounds, vibrations and melodies of her native Africa, she who danced Kizomba and Semba long before she could walk. She grew up in Europe and built her project: to make music, to sing her songs, to play them on stage, to meet people to share joy and pleasure again. Her path will often be made through difficulties, disappointments, rejections, blows. This will make her a strong, determined and above all free woman. Her first EP will be released in early 2019. It gives voice to a new sound, a progressive, mixed kuduro. Her voice, powerful, rhythmic, but also fragile and sensitive, leads into a bewitching universe, on the borders of dance and saudade. Where no one has taken us before. She immediately attracted the attention of the media and programmers in Europe and the US. She gave about fifty concerts throughout Europe. From the Transmusicales, where she unveiled herself, to London, where she ended her 2019 tour. Always with the same communicative energy, these great festive communions that are her shows. Today, Pongo presents UWA. A new EP that goes even further in this style that is now so personal to her. This mix of the influence of his African roots, kuduro, langa, zaïco, with EDM, bass music, dancehall and melodic pop.
