A peña is social event involving a variety of singers, poets, ballet and folk orchestras that present their work in confined spaces, before an audience seated at candlelit tables, which often consume wine and empanadas. Sometimes, members of the public are invited to participate spontaneously and improvised with a number of art.
Invited by the traditional music, “good vibe” and guitars, more and more people come for the night at folk clubs in the city of Buenos Aires.
