PENYA - SUPER LIMINAL
Following on from the critically acclaimed Penya Investigations cassettes and the 12” Acelere EP, Afro-Latin electronic collective Penya conclude an intensely creative period with a full LP titled Super Liminal.
‘Liminal’ – an in-between state – references the transitional process the four-piece band entered during a series of self-produced recording sessions held at Penya's multi-instrumentalist Magnus P.I's home studio between March 2016 and May 2017.
Penya's percussive and futuristic Afro-Latin sound also owes its genesis to the concept of ‘liminality’: the threshold of disorientation occurring during ritual practices.
Penya's hypnotic groovescapes, led by Jim LeM's bata drumming, ancient chants, sung by Lilli Elina, dubbed-out improvisations on trombone by Viva Msimang and lo-fi electronic production by Magnus P.I create a sound that has garnered significant support on BBC 6 Music via Tom Ravenscroft, Worldwide FM via Gilles Peterson, on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, as well as being praised by a host of producers including DJ Khalab, Will LV, DJ Jose Marquez and Dengue Dengue Dengue.

Event Review: We Out Here Festival (Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire; Thursday 15th to Sunday 18 August 2019)

An inaugural festival is always going to be packed with risk and suspense, and after the downpour that Friday night experienced, a breath was held in anticipation of Saturday’s events.

Album Review: Gilles Peterson Presents Sonzeira – Tam… Tam… Tam…! Reimagined [Brownswood Recordings – July 15, 2016]

Tam Tam Tam Reimagined, well, reimagines a classic Brazilian music, from Jose Prates’ Tam Tam Tam, into the second volume of Gilles Peterson’s Sonzeira project (the first release was Bam Bam Bam.) The original Tam Tam Tam was an album of lively drumbeating, band playing, and singing, that sounds like…

Today, black music is warmth, experimentation, crossbreeding, avant-garde, tradition, and rhythm. Turin’s Jazz Re:Found festival explores these definitions, with a curious and forward thinking vision on music, honouring great names of the past while looking at the most current scenes with a sharp eye and sensitive ear.
