Full Name

Carmen 'Raya' Alonso




Starlight Foundation


Drummer of The Holograms

Voiced By

Linda Dangcil

Raya is a relative latecomer to the Holograms, who took over on drums after Shana Elmsford temporally left, after winning a drum duel in a talent search.


Raya is a beautiful, modest and kind-hearted young woman who never assumes and is shown to be warm and friendly to others. She can be a bit shy and not very assertive. Her insecurities make her naive but she has been shown to possess a volatile temper when provoked. When she found out Shana was returning to the band - thus making the newcomer redundant - she was in a position to betray Jem's identity. However she remained loyal and kept Jem's secret allowing her to continue performing with them.


Carmen 'Raya' Alonso is a Hispanic-American, whose parents came to the USA from Mexico, and owns and operates their own nursery of domestic and exotic plants. She has been playing drums since she was very young, and is also good with other percussion instruments. She also has three brothers.

When Shana left the band to pursue a career as a fashion designer, there was an opening for a new drummer, so they held a nationwide talent search to find Shana's replacement. In the end, Raya won, after beating close competitor, Craig Phillips (Stormer's brother) in a drum duel. After Shana returns to the group, Raya continues on as the Holograms' drummer, while Shana takes up the bass guitar.
