In only a week, Peña, team of musicians managed to record 50 tracks of Afro-Peruvian music. This was just the beginning for the group assembled by producer Cory Wong on his trip to Lima, Peru. Although only 17 songs made it into the first volume, all the songs chosen exemplified the variety of rhythms that exist within this genre.
Even though it has only been a little less than two months since Peña’s last album was released, Secret Stash Records will make Peña Volume 3: The Remixes available digitally on April 26. In the newest album, Wong fuses jazz, electronic and rock to selected songs from the last two volumes to bring a fresh sound to traditional Afro-Peruvian music.
