Los Chunguitos are a Spanish rumba group from Vallecas, Madrid, formed in 1973. The group's nucleus was the three brothers Juan, Manuel, and Jose Salazar, whose aunt was the flamenco singer Porrina de Badajoz. Their sisters, Toni and Encarna, sang backup and would later go on to success on their own as Azucar Moreno. The name "Los Chunguitos" comes from the pastime of throwing small stones at trains. They began as street buskers, playing in Madrid. In 1977, they auditioned at the offices of record label EMI, and producer Raul Ros convinced the label to sign them.
