Michael Govea is a Latin composer and artist, and leader of other bands like Los Compas and Cascada de Flores. He met a musician and lawyer named Susan Peña more than twenty years ago. Today, the two of them and their daughters Rene and Cecilia form, the band known as La Familia Peña-Govea, and play Latin music around the Bay Area. They have released two recordings, “Rene at 15” and “Cohetes.”
Spark joins the the family as they practice in their living room: each member alternates between guitar, accordion, vocals and percussion. Playing primarily Tex-Mex and Colombian music, La Familia Peña-Govea has recorded two CDs and appears at festivals and events around Northern California.
