Los Kahunas – Otro Reverberante Encuentro Con [2007]:

 Otro Reverberante Encuentro Con 
Los Kahunas is a quartet of musicians who call Argentina home. The band makes its home in Buenos Aires where it has made a name for itself by being one of only a handful of bands making surf rock. The band formed in 2004 as lead guitarist Big Papu Castaniero, rhythm guitarist Antonio Carlos, bassist Damian Baldi, and drummer Alexis B came together to make their own version of Surf-Rock. 
This [their 2nd long player]  album is split between band originals written by Big Papu Castaneiro and several cover versions of songs by the likes of The Astronauts, The Lively Ones, and of course, The Ventures. While the band handles the cover tunes with skill, the original songs by the band are what shine on this release. Songs like 6G15 and California Kustom bring to mind The Ventures when they were in their peak of popularity. This is not to say that Los Kahunas are a carbon copy of the Venture, but the parallels are definitely hard to miss. Dig!
