On The Corner Records favourites Penya kick off the new year with a collaborative EP with legendary gogo musician Msafiri Zawose. The collaboration began in September 2017 when Penya's Magnus P.I. spent a week in Tanyania, East Africa, recording material at Zawosi's studio. Penya are a genre defying quartet that embody the energized sound of a cosmopolitan UK. A host of traditional folkloric rhythms, club culture motifs, and DIY electronics mark the band's distinct sound. Drums, horn, and vocals evoke Penya's live performance from a world of euphoric ritual and visceral dance scapes, ancient and future. The band's debut LP Superliminal (2018) quickly achieved critical acclaim from a host of taste makers and artists including Gilles Peterson, Bonobo, Tom Ravenscroft, WorldWide FM, Jeremy Sole, Late Junction (BBC Radio 3), and Boiler Room. The band went on tour, quickly establishing it's dancefloor ready, multi-instrumental live show. Since Superliminal, Penya have released collaborations with a diverse array of artists including Dengue Dengue Dengue, Photay, Sarathy Korwar, and most recently the renown Tanzanian artist Msafiri Zawose. Legendary gogo musician Msafiri Zawose, is heir to the legacy of the late Hukwe Zawose that put the music of Tanzania on the atlas.
