The Penguins

15.08.17

The Penguins, the multi-faceted band of Sant Feliu de Llobregat, returns to charge to celebrate its tenth anniversary with the publication of a new EP, where they remain faithful to their claim to the earliest Jamaican rhythms. And despite having been busy with Reggae per Xics, its successful show aimed at the children and family, it seems that the band has internalized and settled the baggage of nearly 200 concerts and more than 10.000 copies sold with this parallel project to gain maturity and solidity.

To celebrate this decade they wanted to make a small self-gift by emulating their bands and singers referring to Jamaica, who used to cover, in a reggae style, some hits from other musical genres outside the island. From the conviction that Jamaican music can only be understood as a rich explosion of confluences of various rhythms, cultures and social contexts, The Penguins has allowed the luxury of versioning artists and bands as diverse as Etta James, The Coasters, Stealers Wheel, Bob Dylan and even the galactic Jaume Sisa.

In this way, The Penguins, X, album of the 10th anniversary of The Penguins, becomes a small tribute, which is not only addressed to the music of the mythical island of Antilles, but also to that irreverent and soulful spirit that permeated the music of 50s, 60s and 70s decades of the last century.
