Los Pinguos play Ashley Pond, 7 p.m. Friday for the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series. The band is from Buenos Aires, Argentina and they play a mix of Latin rhythms, reggae, rumba, tango, flamenco and rock. “The music is very energetic, fun, sexy, fiery and passionate. All right! It’s the 3rd Friday night party of the series,” coordinator Russell Gordon said.
Gordon said he looked up “Los Pinguos,” in the Spanish-English dictionary. “Nada. On the computer, I only found an outstanding band from Buenos Aires,” he said.
The Spanish word for “penguins” is “pinguinos”.
“I looked up los pinguinos de Patagonia and there’s a lot of really cool pictures. One of Los Pinguos’ favorite bands and early influences were the Beatles it’s a good name!” Gordon said.
Los Pinguos formed in 1999 in Buenos Aires and became very popular. In 2001, they moved to Los Angeles looking to find international success.
They’ve played all the major clubs and world music festivals in the Los Angeles area and all over the United States and the world. They’ve played the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, Calif., many times. The same street festival that the Red Elvises first performed at in Los Angeles.
