Chello Dachance  

Bio– Music - Career - Passion - Beliefs - Goals..


Marcelo Diaz De Villegas (also known as Chello Dachance) is an accomplished singer/songwriter, producer, and dancer whose passion for musical storytelling began during his teenage years. Embarking upon his creative career in the heart of New York City in the 90s, he ultimately started touring across the globe, from Argentina to Europe, Mexico to Australia. Widely known for his eclectic, diverse approach, his musical style showcases a seamless crossover of Indi, Soulful, Pop, and Funk with Spanish undertones and direct influences from music legends Prince, Michael Jackson, and David Bowie.  


 Chello is currently based in between Buenos Aires and Los Angeles, California,  where he soliciting his song catalog for publishing and licensing.  He continues to develop, express and share his music, reaching out to more people and expanding the ever-growing fan base through several social media platforms. 


I love being a Dad, and close to my daughters working every day to make that happen. I like to play music with friends and enjoy the recording process. I love having those moments when I can just ponder an idea and walk on sand barefoot.  I enjoy making people laugh and for them to be happy. I am most uneasy in crowds unless I’m entertaining them, kind of a dark secret of mine. I love to cook, with family, friends, one of my deep expressions of love. I am grateful all the time for all I have and all that is coming my way.


My sense of empathy for the world we live on, and the maintenance of our planet so to speak, is strong. I am very sensitive to the destruction, war, racism, and the slew of harmful human activity that affect most lives on earth. I feel the need to give back in addition to music with faith, vision and a sense of optimism and enthusiasm for life.


I dream that I can make a difference with a song. 

"I SEE GREEN", "HUMANS" and "ONE IS ALL", are a testament to that. "MANIFESTING SONGS THAT POSITIVELY TRANSFORM LIVES". I believe like so many that music really is an avenue to the higher ground, and can truly transform lives, find your mission. Be part of Da meaning, Da truth, and Da music with Da chance.
