Los Pinguos will bring its Latin American musical journey and sound to UCSB at 8 p.m. May 6 in the MultiCultural Center Theater.

Los Pinguos came to the United States from Buenos Aires, Argentina, with a mixture of rhythms. Performing their vivacious tunes at UCSB will be Adrián Buono (guitar and vocals), José Agote (guitar and vocals), Santiago Lee (bass and vocals) and Pablo Medina (drums).

The group Los Pinguos has appeared on three of the Putumayo World Music compilation albums, Baila!, Radio Latino and World Party.

The musicians have performed worldwide in India, Bali, Italy, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and throughout the United States.

Los Pinguos’ music has appeared on TV shows The Shield and The L Word, in movies such as Antonio Banderas and Emma Thompson’s Imagining Argentina, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and two of their songs were included in Katherine Heigl’s movie The Ugly Truth.

Tickets for the show are on sale at

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
