The Fandangoe Kid - Tender Hearted Bold Moves
Rough Trade Edition No.39
Taking the form of loving directives, mixtape instructions and advice on being in the world, Sonia’s words and memory are bound into a visual narrative that explodes with love, grief, music and tenderness.
‘I catch your eye across the room. One glance is enough to know you’ve got my back.’
The Fandangoe Kid is a London based print artist who makes large-scale narrative driven pieces for the public realm. Her work seeks to smash taboos around complex subject matters such as loss, trauma release, mental health and gender constructs. The artist has created work for a wide range of purposes, most recently with her ‘Staircase of Dreams’ for London Design Festival 2020, working with young people to develop a collective narrative on daily activism.
In 2019, she installed an 80 metre narrative on the entire floor of City Hall for Sadiq Khan’s charity Thrive Ldn, about the power of dancing for mental health. The installation was called ‘The Language is Movement’ and she presented it to Sadiq himself, having worked with young Londoners for months prior to the install to talk to them about what dancing means to them.
She has worked with young people in Hackney and inner-city London for over a decade, her remit being to encourage young people from all backgrounds to know themselves better through their creative practice.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
