Don Chani

Austin, Texas, USA

Don Chani is the almighty peanut man reggae music ghost catcher. We came to know him in the deepest shadows of the jungles of Costa Rica. He led us to the music that we have always loved the most in our hearts and we play our tunes for him and any other ears that are open.



What began as a group of friends with common interests in music evolved naturally into the current configuration that is Don Chani.

Drawing from an era that many consider to be reggae’s golden age, the late 60s through the late 70s, and the latin influences of two of its members, Don Chani has carved out a unique sound unmatched by any of its contemporary counterparts.

Don Chani regularly tours and is a mainstay at the state’s biggest reggae festival, The Austin Reggae Festival. Don Chani has shared the stage with reggae greats such as The Skatalites, Culture, Eek A Mouse, Luciano, Sister Carol, The Wailing Souls, Morgan Heritage, The Mighty Diamonds, Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars, and The Meditations.
