Meet Me There Weekender & Tuckshop Music present:
Penya (full live band)
Manu - Loka (Tuckshop Music)
Tickets available from DICE & RA on Thursday 4th April at 11am!
Incredibly pleased to launch a new live series at NT's, London Fields with the first collaboration coming from Tuckshop Music and Meet Me There Weekender - Ghana!
Penya is an electronic quartet led by producer and multi instrumentalist Magnus PI.
Penya's percussive wanderings in Cuba, Turkey, Morocco, Tanzania and India have garnered a tribal, alternative dance floor take on Afro-Latin rhythms, which was described on BBC 6 Music DJ Tom Robinson’s ‘Fresh On the Net’ site as a sound that "has been spun by an Afro-Jazz DJ at the end of a three day bender".
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 Tom Ravenscroft, (BBC 6 music), Gilles Peterson (WorldwideFM), Gary Crowley (BBC Radio London), Nick Luscomb (BBC Radio 3), Best Before (Channel 4), Boiler Room, DJ Khalab, NTS, Soho and much more!
