Formed in 1985, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs is a Latin rock band from Buenos Aires, Argentina. With a unique sound that is a mix of rock, ska, jazz, folk, reggae, funk, and big band, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs is one of the most influential and referenced bands of the Latin rock world. Although the band’s lineup has changed throughout the years, the co-founders, singer Gabriel Fernandez Capello (known as Vicentico) and bassist Flavio Cianciarulo (known as Sr. Flavio), have always been the core members. The Cadillacs received a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album and were nominated in 2000 for two Latin Grammy Awards for Best Band and Best Music Video for "La Vida.” After a seven year hiatus, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs regrouped in late 2008 to create La Luz del Ritmo, their sixteenth full length album. The New York Times recently raved of their live show, “On stage it started with an adamant samba-reggae beat and dipped into dancehall, salsa and funk while the whole room shouted along.”
