Los Chavos

Los Chavos are a Canberra based 8 piece band playing Latin rock, cumbia, ska, reggae, and samba.

An 8-piece explosion of Latin reggae energy, Los Chavos channel the festival sounds and urban rhythms of Latin America to sway hips from Canberra to Colombia. Fronted by Andy Jauregui, from Cochabamba, Bolivia, and backed by seasoned musicians from Australia and South America. Los Chavos have been moving crowds for over 10 years in Canberra and the festival circuit.

Honing their craft with the sweaty crowds at the National Multicultural Festival, Floriade and many other smaller clubs and venues, the band released their debut EP in 2008, a tight testament to their live sound and their unique vision.

Los Chavos released their debut LP “Supermeng” in 2012 at the first Day Of the Dead Fiesta; a significant development and evolution of their live performances. The album showcases signature energy coupled with complex arrangements and a large variety of rhythms - but never straying too far from their ska/reggae roots. Romantic ballads are given a ska/cumbia twist and hard-hitting merengue horns are mixed with calypso-hiphop.

Having gestated in the nations capital and developed a large following of ex-pat Latin Americans, Jazz and funk aficionados and music lovers young and old, Los Chavos are ready to take their sounds to a wider audience and cut their teeth around Australia. No one can resist the vivacity of Los Chavos!
