Paul Pena

Recommended Posts

most people have never heard of Paul Pena, but have you ever heard the song "jet airliner" by the Steve Miller Band? that was Paul's song

he made an album, called New Train, which was shelved in 1973--just in time to put Steve Miller sales through the roof. he fell off the radar for a few decades, and learned about Tuvan throat singing, and went to Tuva (i think Mongolia) and beat the Tuvans at their own game--this was the subject of a documentary called Ghengis Blues (which also has a soundtrack)

if you want some blues, this guy will blow your mind (Ghengis Blues could also qualify as world, with the throat singing)

Apparently he has also played with Bonnie Raitt and BB King and TBone Walker. Here's a link on the Genghis Blues project

2 years ago, an ad on tv used that kind of singing and those guys became very famous here. They came for a 3 day live but the show sold out and they had to make 10 more shows. They are called Hun Hur Tur I think.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
