[NUEVA DISCO] To put it simply, Los Amigos Invisibles are a dance band. More accurately, though, they’re a space-age fusion of global grooves. Formed in Venezuela, the sextet was deeply immersed in the club culture of its hometown of Caracas before being discovered by rhythm junkie David Byrne, who signed the group to his Luaka Bop label in 1997. The group introduced itself to a worldwide audience via its international debut, The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera, a record that blended chilled-out lounge vibes with irresistibly funky, somewhat self-consciously cheesy tracks, a tinge of Latin flavor and not-so-subtle sexual come-ons. On every album since, up through and including the brand new Repeat After Me, the band has continued to expand its palette, exploring house, disco, salsa, funk, acid jazz and pop—anything that gets feet moving, really.
