Great news, everyone. Penya has shared details of a new album.
Marking the debut release on their new label Liminal Recordings, preceding the album is the opening track ‘Elevation’, which you can stream above. The record comes three years on from their last full-length project, 2018’s Super Liminal.
The Penya LP, a press release explains, “reimagines the global music landscape.” The ten-track album is a genre-melting exploration of ancestral rhythms, with the band asking the question:
How deep do our roots reach into the unseen places that keep us anchored to the real world?
The genre-defying band enlist several long-term friends, including Tamar Osborn, Maria Zofia Osuchowska, Msafiri Zawose and more as the quartet continue experimenting with new styles and genres.
