Jung People (/ˈjʊŋ/yuung): a post-rock group from Calgary, AB. Known for their dynamic blend of drowsy ambience, complex timings and fulminant guitar.

Founded in 2010 by childhood friends Bryan Buss and Jordan Bassi after many punk-rock and metal bands. The music grew to be strongly Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Corporate and Anti-Globalization. Jung People will be displaying an audible display of their Post-rock and Prog sonic efforts.Definitely relatable for fans of melodic, beautiful, instrumental arrangements, especially for the ears of 70’s prog/art rock.

Pancho and Sal are based in Vancouver, Canada.Born in San Jorge, Argentina, Pancho wrote poems from a young age.  He moved to Europe to follow his dreams of playing the guitar and sharing his songs with the world.  After touring in many countries, he became a troubadour style musician in the 80’s in Sweden.Playing with Gypsies in the South of France, he learned rumbas and flamenco.   His compositions reflect these influences of flamenco and other folk rhythms. After years of exchange with other musicians, his original music has a wide diversity of styles.

Sal, who was born in England and raised in Canada, met Pancho in Cuzco, Peru, and from then on together as a family and musical duo have established a name for themselves. Sal compliments the music with her vocals, accordion, shakers, chachas, bombo and guitar.

They have a unique poetic style of translating simultaneously  from Spanish to English.

You can enjoy Pancho and Sal at Folk Festivals, Community Centers, schools, restaurants, dance shows, concerts in the parks and numerous other events.

The exciting news is they have created “The Rio Samaya Band”, with the concept and project to tour the world like a duo and build up the band joining with local musicians using the Rio Samaya Band signature.  Rio Samaya Band has already debuted with incredibly talented musicians in Beijing, Tunisia and most recently in their home town, Vancouver.

Pancho and Sal (Rio and Samaya) are ready to go anywhere in the world to play for you………Watch YouTube
