Austria 2019: Pænda – "Limits"


Gabriele Horn (stagename: Pænda) is a 31-years-old electro pop artist living in Vienna, Austria. She is a singer, songwriter and producer, with a sound that incorporates pop with various elements of electronic music: Future bass, hip hop and trap are all woven together.

Pænda is a "one-woman show". She writes and composes her own songs, she plays all the instruments herself, and she also produces her own songs.

Pænda loves Eurovision. Mostly because Eurovision shows Europe at its best and stands for cultural diversity. It fills her with pride and joy that she has been selected to represent Austria at Eurovision Song Contest:

– When I was watching the Eurovision Song Contest on ORF in the past few years, I knew that if the opportunity presented itself, I would very much like to become part of it and compete for Austria. Music becomes a universal language, boundaries dissolve and it is shown that love is colorful, diverse and can not be classified in any drawer. The contest is a bridge builder that manages to unite different cultures and religions for a while. Now I'm allowed to sing for Austria and I am overwhelmed. It really means a lot to me to be part of this message to the world, says Pænda.

Her first goal at Eurovision 2019 is to qualify for the final. When that goal is reached, she wants to go all the way to the top.
