Los Amigos Invisibles are undoubtedly one of the most important Venezuelan bands in the contemporary Latin music scene. They have an impressive international following, only comparable to very few acts in Latin America. Julio Briceño (vocals), Mauricio Arcas (percussion), Juan Manuel Roura (drums), and José Rafael Torres (bass), have now decided to embark in a new adventure called "El Paradise Tour" - a new series of concerts, where Los Amigos Invisibles will be debuting a brand new show, fit with a recently designed stage and production, so as to maximize the experience of their fans and give them a party, unlike ever before!
The new album titled El Paradise was written, recorded, and produced during the last 18 months of a tour that took them to over 80 shows in 14 countries. The funky, groovy track ”Aquí nadie está sano" is the second single from the new material and includes a special collaboration with Los Auténticos Decadentes. The music video video features both bands dancing and living it up with friends and other interesting characters, including puppets.
