The group was formed by Arkadi Jacobson, Anton Koliadko and Andrey Bar – friends for the last two decades. In the beginning of 2004 Anton and Arkadi began to perform in Russian bars. Their acoustic performance was enhanced by Andrey, and so the idea for the “Los Caparos” was born. In 2005 “Los Caparos” were invited to the “VDOH” Festival in Moscow. Once back from Russia, they began working on the debut album. Few month later, after meeting Ziv and Amit they started to build the foundation of the present days band. “Rasta Vasily” was produced in collaboration with Ben Hendler (Balkan Beat Box) and combined guest appearances by great Israeli musicians. The album was released in August 2007 and later the same year “Los Caparos” performed at the AMI Awards where they were affirmed as the “next big thing” in Israeli music.
