    Penya

    Latin Electronica

    Penya is a percussion driven, electronic quartet led by producer and multi instrumentalist Magnus PI. 

    Penya's percussive wanderings in Cuba, Turkey, Morocco, India, Peru and Tanzania have garnered a tribal, alternative dance floor take on Afro-Latin rhythms.

    Many of Penyas' songs touch on ancient Afro-Cuban melodies sung by the band’s multi-instrumentalist / vocalist Lilli Elina, whilst other tracks are wide open electronic groove scapes that draw on percussion don Jim Le Ms experiences as a ceremonial Bata drummer. Viva Msimang's dubbed-out trombone improvisations, percussion and backing vocal contributions complete the Penya soundscape. 

    Penyas' releases have been hailed by Gilles Peterson and  Tom Ravenscroft, (BBC 6 music), Nick Luscomb (BBC Radio 3), Jeremy Sole (KRCW) Worldwide FM (Thristian and Will LV), Bonobo, Band Camp, Best Before (Channel 4), Boiler Room, DJ Khalab, NTS, Soho and Radar Radio.
