We are happy to share this beautiful video of the band, Los Pinguos, performing their song “Fumaza,” live outside on a boat in Marina del Rey, CA. We first met Los Pinguos as they were performing on the Santa Monica promenade and recorded them on our very first documentary featuring street musicians across the USA. Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, the band plays a mixture of latin rhythms such as cumbia and rumba along with tango gypsy and rock influences. Put on your dancing shoes, forget about your troubles, and let the music carry you away.
Purchase the entire live outside session, Los Pinguos en Vivo, and get the new and unreleased video, “Contigo.”
