Just released today by Secret Stash Records, Peruvian ensemble, Peña, unveils another impressively cohesive collection of music handpicked from their travels to Lima, Peru. If you remember their self-titled October 2010 release, you will be delighted to find out that these guys are back once again with the different styles and eclectic flavor they received critical praise for. With efforts solely intended to spread the musical brilliance of Peru, Peña wishes to indulge their listeners in a series of cultural journeys and display their passion for Afro-Peruvian music. Also, in an effort to help share Afro-Peruvian music with young musicians, musician/producer Cory Wong has assembled a live ensemble and educational curriculum that he is bringing to colleges throughout the country this fall.  What may have seemed like a one off project to some people is on the path to becoming a musical force with serious longevity.

Peña Vol. II attempts to continue to follow-up the success of the previous release with amazing results…The music is perfect for lounging, dancing, or contemplating the next release from Secret Stash.” – Inside World Music

“Unlike a lot of American-made songs and performances, the music on Peña II eschews Peruvian pop culture. There is a spirituality that is tapped when the mics are turned on to pick up the noises and rhythms.” – Record-Racks
