Biography[edit]

Álex Anwandter's Chilean family history goes back to the German Carlos Anwandter, who emigrated to Chile in 1850 and became one of the leaders of the German colonization of Valdivia. Álex's father, Paul Anwandter, lived a large part of his life in Brazil before moving to Chile at the age of 26.

As a child, Álex took violin lessons, and his main musical influence was Michael Jackson. He went to school at Santiago College, and later he began studying psychology at university, but abandoned it shortly thereafter. He was also temporarily a student at the Escuela Moderna de Música but didn't show much interest in music theory.[5]
