Information:

Due to the government restrictions surrounding coronavirus we have rescheduled the upcoming Pongo show at The Jam Jar to  Thursday 29th April 2021.

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. In the energy she gives on stage, or when she talks about her songs, Pongo always refers to her childhood in Angola. She systematically returns to this little girl from Luanda who protects herself from adult war thanks to music and dance, in her own little world. A sweet vertigo. Exiled to Lisbon, she will put aside chaos to keep the scents, the colors, the memories of this childhood. Especially the sounds, the vibrations and the melodies of her native Africa, as a girl who danced Kizomba and Semba long before she could walk. It was therefore in Europe that she grew up, where she built her project: Making music, singing her songs, playing them on stage, meeting people to share joy and pleasure again. Her path has often been difficult, disappointing, rejecting, pounding. This is what made her a strong, determined and above all a free woman. Her first EP has been released early 2019. It is a new, progressive, mixed Kuduro sound. Her voice, powerful, rhythmic, but also fragile and sensitive, leads into a bewitching universe, on the borders of dance and saudade. Where no one had taken us before. It immediately caught the attention media and programmers worldwide. She started to tour all over Europe. Fifty concerts, from Transmusicales where she revealed herself, to London, Madrid or Berlin where she ended her 2019 autumn tour. Still in the same communicative energy, these great festive communions are her shows. UWA. her recently released EP goes even further in her specific style. This mixture of influences of her African roots, kuduro, langa, zaïco, with EDM, bass music, dancehall and melodic pop, will convince the public that she is a unique artist to follow.
