Techno group Néctar wiped out in Argentina

All nine members of the Peruvian pop group Néctar died in a road accident in Buenos Aires in the early hours of this morning. Front men Jhonny and Enrique Orozco were killed instantly, along with group manager Juan Murillo. No member of the group survived.

Investigations are underway to determine the cause of the accident, which occurred at around 3am. A total of thirteen people were killed in a multi-vehicle pile up that resulted in a fire.

The group were popular all over Latin America for their techno-tropical style rhythms, and since their founding in 1995 had toured Europe and the USA.

Friends and fans have gathered at Jhonny Orozco’s North Lima home to commemorate the group. The group’s bodies will be returned to Peru for burial.
