Cetu Javu was a German synthpop band which released songs between 1987 and 1994. The band consisted of the singer Javier Revilla Diez and the keyboarders Chris Demere, Stefan Engelke and Torsten Engelke.

Lead vocalist Revilla Diez comes from Spain. The majority of the band's songs are sung in English with several also sung in Spanish. Cetu Javu had several dance hits with "Situations", "Have In Mind (The Kalimba Mix)" and "A Dónde".[1]

After Cetu Javu ended, lead singer Javier Revilla Diez became a professor of geography at the Leibniz University Hannover.[2] Since April 2014, Revilla Diez holds a Chair in Human Geography at the Institute of Geography at the University of Cologne.

Cetu Javu released two albums, Southern Lands (ZYX Records, 1990)[3] and Where Is Where (Blanco y Negro Music, 1992).[4]
