Get Friendly With Los Amigos Invisibles "Repeat After Me"

Deirdre Saravia and Nathan Cone listen to "Repeat After Me" by Los Amigos Invisibles.

In the early 1990s in Venezuela, a group of young musicians decided to compose and play music unlike any thing they heard in the clubs of Caracas.

Los Amigos' style is described as disco/funk and is definitely dance music. Amazingly, the original line up is unchanged over their twenty years of playing together.

With an enormous Latin fan base they've garnered numerous award nominations and received a couple of Latin Grammys. "Repeat After Me" is their seventh CD release and true to form is choc a bloc with absolutely great tracks.

In 2000 the group  relocated to New York and since then have shed their invisibility  and will no doubt continue to gather even more ardent friends.
