Event Details

A peña is a casual and participatory social event centered around live music that celebrates community through music, poetry, prose, and culture.

Peñas have a rich and varied history, and can be quite different from one country to another. In Spain, peñas often celebrate and promote Flamenco culture, while in Perú they tend to focus on what is known as Música Criolla–an array of sub-genres created from the fusion of Spanish, Andean and African cultures, such as huayno, festejo, and marinera. In Chile and Argentina, countries that underwent civic unrest in the 1960s and 1970s, peñas involve music known as Nueva Canción – a genre with roots in Cuba’s revolutionary Nueva Trova.
