About Bandoleros

Bandoleros is the Chicago-based musical force of nature that has mesmerized audiences around the world with its spicy blend of Middle Eastern, Spanish flamenco and Latin flavors. Featuring a multicultural musical repertoire of original songs sung in Arabic, English, Spanish, Italian, Greek and Turkish, their music pulses with spirited, get-up-and-dance rhythms.

Bandoleros began 15 years ago as an immensely popular band that covered the music of the renowned Gipsy Kings.  However, it was their original songs that refined the band’s signature “Gipsy-Arabia” sound and caught the attention of the band that had served as their muse in the early days. Bandoleros’ CDs now include original songs recorded with members of the Gipsy Kings, and the band has collaborated with Patchai Reyes of the Gipsy Kings and Los Reyes on sold-out tours throughout the Middle East, Far East and India.

The internationally recognized Zumba Fitness has purchased “Mambo”, an original Bandoleros Song for their upcoming new CD to be distributed throughout the world.  The City of Chicago also paid tribute to Bandoleros when the band was asked to perform with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in the city’s bid to host the 2016 Olympics. The recording was presented to the International Olympic Committee in Beijing during the summer Olympic Games, offering a resonant example of the sheer energy and diversity of music in Chicago.

Representing their Assyrian and Spanish heritage, Bandoleros band members include Wesam Isho (composer, vocals and percussion), Ashur Isho (composer, guitar, vocals and sound engineer), Mauro Frosio (keyboards), and Robert Antar (rhythm guitar). Their record credits include Habibi (2000), Bandolero (2002), Maximo (2003), A Part of Us (2005), Ashur Solo (2006), Compas de Fuego (2008), Gipsy Arabia (2010), Habibi Nisani (2010), and Bandoleros Live (2011).
