Founded in 2006, Los Amigos is the first Latin jazz band in India. The band is named as a tribute to the original ''Los Amigos'', emblematic and legendary Cuban band. They have released three albums: Collecion Privada (2007), In Dawn (2009) and Thank You For Being There (2010).
“They gave out an explosive performance by delivering the various colors of Latin patterns including mambo, rumba, salsa and samba[...]. Los Amigos dares enough to step out from the authentic sound and rhythm of India and brought their own style of genuine Latins.” --- Jazzuality, Java Jazz festival 2011
Los Amigos have performed at various venues in India, at the Congo Square Jazz Festival and at the Kala Ghoda festival in Mumbai.
They also performed at the Java Jazz Festival in 2011.
