Pongo

(Portugal)


Born in Angola, based in Lisbon, 24-year-old Pongo explodes onto the European scene with her debut solo EP, bringing a melodic, artistic, soulful approach to the classic kuduro sound. Best known for her work with Buraka Som Sistema including the monster international hit Kalemba (Wegue Wegue), she draws on her experience of growing up in Luanda, Angola in the 90s to bring personal, powerful, emotional songs that are touching hearts and rocking dancefloors across the world.PONGO embodies the renewal of Kuduro, mixing her African, Langan & Zairian roots with EDM, bass music, dancehall & melodic pop. Her powerful, rhythmic, but equally fragile & sensitive voice draws us into her world, on the borders of dance & saudade, where no one has taken us before.
