Los Chanelas

Chanela is gypsy slang for ‘celebration’, an appropriate description of this exciting group’s music – a combination of flamenco, Spanish rumba and Salsa rhythms. The group originally formed in Buenos Aires by Argentinean guitarist Miguel Ovejero. Miguel’s arrival in Australia in 1998 saw him put together an eclectic and culturally diverse group of professional musicians to create the current Los Chanelas line-up. The band’s sound has evolved to capture the spontaneity and passion of the Spanish and Latin groove, with a contemporary Australian feel.

Christina sang in several bands on the west coast of the USA before settling in Australia. Her distinctive vocals, whether it be lead or backing are what she’s recognised for. Both Alan and Christina have been performing this style of music for 25 years.
