Known to friends as a “swiss knife”, Poundo lends her lived experience to the mix to create vivid, cinematographic music that deflty combines political statements with the thump of a proper house party and the persistent rhythms of the heart.
Poundo delivers a collection of tracks that encapsulate her love of fantasy and her infectious personality while bravely exploring her weaknesses.
Poundo is currently finishing up her debut album set to launch in 2020.
