Alabína is made of lead singer Ishtar, who does the female vocals, and the band 'Los Niños de Sara', who provide male vocals and music. Alabína's music mixes many styles, cultures, and languages: Middle Eastern, Spanish music, French, raï, flamenco, gypsy, Arabic, and at times, Western. The group often takes older songs, and gives them new life, adding a mix of styles and languages and Alabina's own flavor.

Group members:

Ishtar (Eti Zach) - Lead female singer

Tonio (Antoine Contreras) - Lead male singer and guitar

Ramón (Ramón Compas) - Guitar / Back-up vocals

Santi (Santiago Lorente) - Correoso Guitar / Back-up vocals

Coco - Percussion / Back-up vocals
