“Bacilos are a multiple award-winning Latin rock and pop group formed by Colombian singer-songwriter and guitarist Jorge Villamizar, Brazilian bassist André Lopes, and Puerto Rican drummer José Javier Freire.

The group made their full-length recording debut with the independently released album Madera in 1999. This was followed by a major-label recording contract with Warner Music Latina, resulting in a series of acclaimed albums – Bacilos (2000), Caraluna (2002), and Sin Vergüenza (2004) – as well as the greatest hits compilation Grandes Exitos (2006). Over the years the group have won multiple Latin Grammy Awards and scored several hit singles, most notably “”Tabaco y Chanel””, “”Caraluna””, “”Mi Primer Millón””, “”Pasos de Gigante””, and “”Contigo Se Va””. In addition, Villamizar has outsourced his songwriting ability, collaborating and co-writing songs with Marc Anthony (“”Viviendo””), Obie Bermúdez (“”Así Me Siento Hoy””), Julieta Venegas (“”Limón y Sal””) and others. Furthermore, he co-wrote several songs on Paulina Rubio’s album Pau-Latina (2004). Bacilos reformed in 2018 to sell-out concerts across Latin America and will return to London this July to perform all their hits as well as music from their new release ‘Donde Nos Quedamos’.”
