Penya is a 4-piece, percussion driven, electronic band led by producer and multi instrumentalist Magnus PI.
Magnus's percussive wanderings in Cuba, Turkey, Morrocco and India have garnered a tribal, alternative dance floor take on Afro-Latin rhythms, which was described on BBC 6Music 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 Radar Radio
Penya's "Beat your demon" EP and "Acelere" EP are available now via On the Corner records.
