Venezuela’s Pao Pestana delivers a captivating blend of seductive beats and alluring soundscapes, infusing her Latin American roots with contemporary, experimental production. Hypnotic electronic elements and organic textures blur the lines between genre, as she invites listeners into her world with lyrics that inspire curiosity, adventure, and fearless authenticity.
Hailing from a family of artists, she fell in love with theater at an early age, exploring acting and dance as a way to indulge her creativity. Growing up in a home filled with music, she gravitated towards singing, later learning to bring her visions to life with production. With a hunger for opportunities and collaboration, she moved to the city of London, immersing herself in its diverse musical landscape, and shining a light on the flourishing Latinx scene.
An explosive 2018 debut sparked curiosity from the likes of EARMILK and Hoxton Radio, with her later releases ‘Quiero Verte’ and ‘Culebras’ attracting support from tastemakers like Jyoty from Rinse FM, BBC Introducing, Wide Radio, Pop Matters, Le Future Wave, among others.
Two sold out shows in 2021 propelled her to support major acts, including La Chica at Dalston Curve Garden, La Yegros at the Jazz Cafe, and a highlight performance at Rich Mix, London, for the London Latin America Music Conference.
