Minneapolis based Secret Stash Records has partnered with Icehouse (26th and Nicollet) to present a series of live events on the first Wednesday of every month. The first event will be on November 7th, 2012. It will feature live music from the label’s Afro-Peruvian band, Peña. When Secret Stash first unveiled Peña in 2010, KFAI presented the critically acclaimed release party at The Cedar Cultural Center.
In April of 2010, Secret Stash Records traveled to Lima, Peru to record Afro Peruvian music. With a portable recording studio, an interpreter, and no preplanned engagements or sessions they hit the streets. Within one week’s time they put together a band they called Peña and recorded over 50 tracks. The cast of musicians was a revolving door of sorts. This self titled release highlights the best recordings from those sessions. In addition to hours of audio recording, they filmed the entire adventure in HD. This CD+DVD package contains interviews, live performances, session footage and more.
