Hello, my name is Jose Perez. I am founder of the best Latin Band in the Nelson/Tasman area : Los Galanes
I put together a band with the best musicians in the two regions with members that are from all around the world , immigrants like me in New Zealand but also some real kiwis, borned and raised in New Zealand :-). We all have in commun the same passion, latin music and jazz !
The objective was simple: Create a Latin Band and sing popular Latin tunes and rearranged classic French and English songs to start a wave of multicultural interests. We would love to be able to add more members from other parts of the Globe.
Diversity means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. A “Galan” is someone like that. We represent the diversity in New Zealand and we transmit our passion through our music, the best we can ... with our accents :-) .
We have plenty of projects in mind not only as a band but also to help local communities. We love our followers that support us, some since the beginning. Thank you , it is thanks to you that this adventure is possible. Every year has been a fantastic year and we want to give you more by continually enhancing our repertoire and quality of our songs. To do one song takes hours of preparation and sacrifices and for some of us even family time. I really appreciate my fellow musicians for their sacrifices and thank them for their efforts. Everytime you support our concerts, we gain so much gratitude and encouragement that we know we are on the right track.
We started this 2020 a new project radio.losgalanes.co.nz. We want our followers to enjoy music 24/7 :-). The site has very interesting programs of all sort of music and podcasts. It also provide independent news at the principal hours of the day and offers a new sentence to learn every 4 minutes in Spanish. What are you waiting for? Enjoy the tunes and practice your spanish :-).
Please give us a like, recommend us, support us on our website and we will continue to give you back more exciting and exotic nights.
Thank you for reading this.
Best regards and lots of Love
