Check out the Genghis Blues CD at the Tuva Trader!
And Paul's website.
Paul Pena's long-awaited unreleased blues album is coming out soon. The
record company is looking for photos of Paul to possibly use on the CD cover
as well as in the liner notes and other promotional material. If you have any
photographs of Paul please submit them to Paul's friend and lawyer:
Paul Pena is the son of immigrants from Cape Verde, West Africa, and lives in San Francisco where he plays a unique blend of Mississippi Delta blues, Cape Verdian folk, and Tuvan throat music. As a blind Creole-American, Pena has continually struggled against injustice through the messages in his music. To Pena, his music represents the "inter-cultural harmony which is becoming increasingly important for the development of a sustainable world environment."
Paul Pena played blues with the greats T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, and Bonnie Raitt. In 1995, the blind bluesman became the first American ever to compete in an unusual contest of multi-harmonic "throatsinging."
