Lenka

Played

Wednesday 17 Jun 2009 MV5BBC Maida Vale Studios, London Delaware Road, W9 2LG

The home of Radio 1's Live Lounge, featuring an exclusive performance from Lenka.

Lenka came into the Live Lounge and performed her new single The Show and a lovely cover of Friendly Fires' Jump In The Pool.
Listen to the interview to hear her chatting with Jo about life back in her native Australia. Cate Blanchet was her teacher at drama school and got Lenka her first role in theatre. Lenka also starred in Home and Away as Angel's sister, who had purple hair - remember her?
She left acting behind her and decided to study sculpture at art school, before realising that music was her dream. Lenka and her boyfriend design all her artwork and actually make all the sets for her gigs.
When she's in the UK she loves to shop and can't leave until she has had a curry. She also talked about proms, tattoos and Johnny Depp!
