Eliades Ochoa: The cowboy-hat wearing guitarist, Ochoa also plays an instrument of his own making which combines the guitar and tres and has nine-strings (the D and G strings are doubled while the rest of the strings are tuned an octave higher). One of the most recognizable members of the band, Ochoa had a radio show when he was a teen and later on was a regular performer at the best-known music club in Santiago.
