Penya is a 4-piece, percussion based electronic band led by producer and multi instrumentalist Magnus PI. Their travels in Cuba, Turkey, Morrocco and India have garnered a tribal, alternative dance floor take on Afro-Latin rhythms. They perform music from their debut LP “Super Liminal” ahead of their launch party at Ghost Notes in Peckham Thursday, 18 January.
