After 24 years of performing internationally, Sukay opened the Peņa Pachamama (Mother Earth) to bring our performances as well as other world musicians together in the magic of a South American Peņa, complete with food from Bolivia and a gallery of art from the Andes. The Peņa takes a more intimate audience into the ambience and spirit of world music, to awaken curiosity in all ages to great traditions, inviting people to dance or taste the Bolivian rock soup or a saltena. We hope this project gives us the freedom to create a more interactive show, an ongoing creation and perhaps a completely new way of performing.
The restaurant has incredible food, organic fruits, vegetables, grains, free-range hormone-free chicken, and naturally raised beef. The bread is organic and hearth-baked. The Bolivian dishes are cooked with only the finest olive and Canola oils. We are adding Pacha Pollo, an Andean marinated chicken and Bolivian pizza to our menu, which includes Salteņas, a savory national turnover, Silpancho, Falso Conejo,Vegetarian Plate, Pique Macho, and Papas or Yucca a la Huancaina.
Come join us Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights for concerts that will get you clapping and dancing in the aisles.
