Biography

Cast your mind back to Europavox 2019: a virtual unknown, Pongo managed to raise the temperature a few more degrees despite the already searing heat. His explosive cocktail of Angolan semba and invigorating electro, known as kuduro, unleashed the audience into frenetic dance that spread far and wide. Since then, with his fantastic onstage backup (one guy on the equipment and another on drums), Engracia Domingos da Silva has performed at countless concerts and festivals all over Europe, and followed two EPs with a flamboyant debut album ‘Baia’, carried by his insanely powerful voice and rhythms that are impossible for body or soul to resist.
