Panda Shuka, which translates to ‘Ups and Downs’ comes fresh after Wendy Kay’s debut four-track EP, “MY WAY”.
“Panda Shuka” serves a refreshing nostalgic sound with a slight Afro, twist vibe, inspired by the rich Kenyan musical history, and pays homage to the pioneers of similar sounds in the same genre and the scene.
The song, “Panda Shuka” is another one of Wendy Kay’s emotional rides that merges the distinct sounds of a very mellow rhythmic guitar melodic riff to a trap-infused bass and drumline. It speaks of the highs and lows of life in general, the uncertainty of life, a hopeful future amidst all circumstances, and aims to encourage anyone against succumbing to societal pressures in the journey of life.

Wendy Kay says, “I used what I had! If I had a lion or a tiger, I’d use it in my video and single cover art, however, I had the goat in my video! The song is for all going through various struggles and still making it work regardless. No matter the circumstances, you keep going! The cyclic nature & continuity of life just means that nothing lasts forever. Every day is a new chance to change your story!”
“Panda Shuka” being Wendy’s first release this year gives her fans a chance to tag along in her journey through life through her art and paves the way for her next release coming July.
