Chini and Camberos
Chini and Camberos are a dynamic guitar duo that combines a unique blend of world beats and rhythms to well crafted melodies. Their music takes you on a journey from the deserts of the Southwest to the Isles of the Mediterranean. Robert Chini, a native of Southern California of Italian descent, is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who started as a drummer at the age of five. Although a drummer, he soon found a passion for the guitar, keyboard, and bass. Robert's talents led him to play bass for the popular England Dan & John Ford Coley. Robert has also written and produced several commercials, one of which won him an Emmy award. Jorge Camberos, born in Matzatlan, Mexico, is an exquisite, extraordinaire Latin/Jazz guitarist. Jorge began exploring his musical talents at a very early age. After experimenting with a variety of musical instruments he soon discovered a passion for the guitar. Jorge attended the University of Mexico City and later moved to Los Angeles, California. It was during this time when Jorge met and worked with such musicians as Al Mackey (Earth. Wind, and Fire) and Steve Lukather of Toto. As a consequence he began backing up shows and touring the West Coast, Canada, and Mexico. Upon his return to L.A. he graduated from GIT.
