Kinky UnpluggedIn an intimate live performance, Kinky joins forces with MTV for their first-ever ‘Unplugged’ album and DVD, featuring a superstar line-up of guests and new versions of their classic hits.

Hosted by Diego Luna, the MTV Unplugged album features collaborations with a crew of stars including ‘A Donde Van los Muertos?’ with Carla Morrison, ‘Negro Dia’ with La Mala Rodríguez, ‘Bien Pedo, Bien Loco’ with Banda Los Recoditos, and ‘Para Poder Llegar a Ti’ with Voz de Mando and Beto Zapata (Grupo Pesado) amongst other tracks.

Kinky will celebrate the ‘MTV Unplugged’ release with initial shows in California, including stops in Anaheim, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and Los Angeles.

The U.S. premiere of ‘Kinky Unplugged’ airs February 9th on MTV tr3s. OnFebruary 7th, Kinky will provide a sneak peak of the material in an intimate performance at Nacional Records’ pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles.

Kinky originally formed in the musically diverse and culturally rich scene of Monterrey, Mexico. More than 15 years ago, Kinky submitted a demo to the LAMC, where they ended up winning the conference’s prestigious “LAMC Discovery Contest.” The band has received multiple Latin Grammy and Grammy nominations for their unique and innovative blend of electronic and alternative rock.

Since their first shows, Kinky has earned a reputation for their captivating live shows and have established themselves as an global touring artist.

“Kinky’s songs ride funk and rock riffs that hark back to the dance-rock of the early 1980s, with a rough edge on keyboards and guitar — but punctuated, every so often, by accordion lines out of Mexican border music. Meanwhile its lyrics fling images of consumerism as brainwashing and distraction, and of partying toward self-destruction, none of which stopped fans from dancing.” – The New York Times
