Nela - Nela is a
Latina from Cuba, and has been in Canada since 1997.
She was the lead singer for a renowned Latin band in Halifax,
where she somehow also found the time to complete her Ph.D. in
computational chemistry. She is now a Full Professor at
Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Kamloops, BC, although her
lifelong passion remains music and singing. She is
broadening her talents, and now plays a mean nylon-string
guitar. Nela is a powerful frontwoman for the band, and
can keep the audience mesmerized throughout an entire show.
Cindy is from Winnipeg, where she was involved with music
throughout her entire life ever since she picked out the "Meow
Mix" song on a piano at the age of 3. She has played and
recorded with several Winnipeg-based bands of many styles and
in various capacities as keyboardest, lead singer, songwriter,
and sax player. She had never tried Latin music before
Caliente. She is also a Full Professor in Biological
Sciences at TRU.
