Ilan Chester ( born Ilan Czenstochowski) is a celebrated Venezuelan singer, keyboardist, arranger and composer.



Israeli-born and Venezuelan-raised, Ilan Chester is a multi-talented musician, singer and composer who has incorporated a global range of influences into his music. Inspired by Tito Rodriquez, the Puerto Rican multi-instrumentalist who was one of the spearheads of New York's Latin music scene, Chester grew up with the jewish, french and italian melodies he heard as a child at home and later he was equally enamored with american R&B ( Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder) and the british rock movement ( Beatles, Yes, Jethro Tull ). His music has grown to include elements of classical music, jazz, Afro-Caribbean, and Venezuelan music. A former member of rock and pop bands like "Trams", "Way" and others in the sixties and seventies, Chester became notorious as an exceptional artistst in Venezuela and all over latin america since launching his solo career on 1983.

After a series of memorable albums, including " Amistad", " Solo faltas tu", "ASI", "Songs Books of Venezuelan Love", Vols. 1, 2 & 3, he attracted even more international attention with the platinum-selling album "Navideno Heart" and a 6 CD collection where he has sold more than 500.000 units in just few weeks only in Venezuela. Ilan is recognized everywhere by artist and critics alike as one of the most talented composer and singer in spanish language. Many of his songs became international hits by latin stars like Mark Anthony, Cheo Feliciano and Chayenne and he has followers all around the globe.
