Sin Bandera was formed spontaneously: Leonel García (from Mexico) had the idea to be soloist, he showed talent on guitar and voice, but his project never took off with the record companies. At the same time, Noel Schajris (from Argentina) was preparing a solo album after making his debut in 1999. Both being musicians, composers and singers, they discovered the ideal formula to unite their talents and personalities in 2000. Noel Schajris was born in 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Leonel García was born on January 27, 1975 in Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico. In 2007, the duo decided to split and start solo careers. Sin Bandera has become an icon of the romantic ballad in Latin America. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
