- Los Shakers
Los Shakers were a popular rock band in 1960s and was a part of the
Uruguayan Invasionin Latin America. The band was formed in 1963 in Montevideo, Uruguay. They were modeled after The Beatlesand even adopted similar haircuts and clothing. The band sang many songs in English, despite their location, and gained their greatest popularity in Argentina. They issued their first single, "Break It All," in 1965.
Their music went in a new direction on their last studio album with the original line up, "La Conferencia Secreta del Toto's Bar". On this album, their sound was that of
psychedelic musicmixed with candombeand some tango sounds. However, their recording label ( EMI) did not approve of this new sound, and left them without any promotion or support; it lead to the band split up. In 2005, the original lineup re-united, and recorded a CD "Bonus Tracks" and played in Argentinaand Uruguay.
