From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Los Chamos were a famous Venezuelan boy band formed in Caracas, Venezuela in 1981 to rival Menudo's success. Los Chamos were made up of six members and released their first album "Los Chamos-El Soldadito" sponsored by channel 8 of Venezuelan National TV.

In 1982, they released their second album called "Siempre Te Amare", which spanned the international hit, Canta Chamo.That album went Gold and Platinum in many Latin American countries. That hit led them to sing at Mexico's Estadio Azteca, among other big venues in Latin America.

In 1983 they released a third hit album called "Tu Como Yo" produced by famous singer and composer Rudy LaScala.

That same year "Los Chamos" released a blockbuster movie called "Secuestro En Acapulco-Canta Chamo" alongside famous actresses Yuri-also a singer- and La Chilindrina

Los Chamos went on tour for many years through Mexico, the United States, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Central America, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, etc. After that huge success, four group members alleged poor working conditions and left to pursue other musical endeavors. Four more boys were brought in to form Los Chamos' line up, and another album was released. The sudden, drastic line up change and new album weren't as positively received by the public, and Los Chamos dissolved soon after. They tried their hand at a fifth release in 1990, with six new members, and after that, Los Chamos officially called it quits.

Nowadays some of the former members relocated and live in the United States, Mexico, Germany and Brazil. On August 28, 2018, Mexican television reporter Ana Maria Canseco announced on her webpage that former member Chamo Will Marquez Uzcategui, "Chamo Will", died unexpectedly from a respiratory condition in his native Venezuela.[1][2]
