Latin folk-rock outfit Christina y los Subterraneos emerged in 1991 after Christina Rosenvinge who started with Ella y los Neumaticos, Magia Blanca and a duo with guitarist Alex de la Nuez decided to assemble a new band.
Antonio García, Francisco Varona, Juan Luis Jiménez and Alejo Stivel were among the musicians participating in their successful record Que Me Parta Un Rayo. By 1994 Christina y los Subterraneos comprised ex-Los Enanitos Verdes' keyboardist Tito Dávila, drummer Sergio Castillo, bassist Elsa Fernández and guitarist David Gwin. That same year Mi Pequeño Animal featuring contributions from Andrés Calamaro was released. In 1996 the Latin rock ensemble joined a tribute to the Spanish-Argentine pop/rock outfit Tequila titled Mucho Tequila! with "Nena,". After issuing Cerrado in 1997 Christina y los Subterraneos recorded an acoustic live album called Flores Raras. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
