Little Tribe Pow – SXSW Performance w/ Mansions On The Moon (Live Video / VTT Interview)

We met Pow at The ILLMORE  following a showcase at The Velveeta Room where she performed with Mansions on the Moon. The collaboration was dope so we wanted to follow up with her after SXSW and get more of a scoop on what she has been up to. Immediately reminding us of a younger Yukimi, Pow has an amazing stage prescense and blended in with the MOTM really well. 
It was great meeting you at SXSW and catching your
performance with Mansions on the Moon. How did you link up with those guys?
I actually met the boys at a showcase I was performing in.
They happened to be there and approached me after the show to do some music
together. I ended up not only writing with them but going on the road.
Their most recent project Lightyears has been getting
amazing reviews. Do you plan on working with them in the future?
I love those guys and so happy for them! Yeh we are like
family now so continuing to collaborate on stuff for me and for the band
Which artists do you draw inspiration from? Are you a big
fan of electronic music?
I am a big Lauryn Hill fan she made me want to be a singer,
but for me Michael Jackson was the ultimate superstar he was on a different
level in every way, his talent, the message and spirit he shared was beautiful.
There hasn’t been anyone that compares to him yet. But I really hope there will
be.
I’m actually relatively a newbie to electronic music but it
definitely is a direction I am heading in especially cause I dance for my solo
project.

How long have you been dancing?
Since I was 3yrs old, started teaching when I was 17 and
become a professional dancer and choreographer soon after,
What are some of the projects that you have been a part of
while dancing and/or choreographing?
I’ve worked on projects with artists Snoop Dogg, Keke
Palmer, Kaz James, Macy Gray, Guy Sebastian, Jade McRae and Andre Fuentes
(choreographer for Britney Spears). Live shows for MTV, Nickelodeon, Urban
Music Awards and Sydney Olympics in 2000. Also a bunch for dance commercials
for corporate company’s Nike, McDonald’s, Snickers, Visa, KFC and Canon.
So having such a prominent background in dance you’ll be incorporating
dance into your live shows?
Yep, and for music videos etc. My solo projecting is more
like in the vein of artists like Michael and Janet Jackson, Madonna mixed with
Rihanna and MIA.
That sounds interesting! What do you have planned for 2012
into 2013?
A lot of things in the works, which is exciting. I’m going
to be in a movie musical that starts later this year, teaching dance and artist
development which I have a passion for, working with some amazing producers and
of course continuing to work with Mansions On The Moon and my own solo project.
