Since their 1987 debut, the band had gone through several changes, finally establishing a permanent structure in 1992. Their first album “Frecuencia Cafre” was released in 1994; this LP set a milestone for reggae music in Argentina, as it was the first one to be entirely recorded in Spanish, it´s also the first roots reggae album in Spanish in the world. By late 1995 the band launched“Instinto” and a few months later they came out with “Instinto Dub” the first dub album recorded in Argentina. In 2009 Instinto was pointed out by Rolling Stone magazine as the “Best ReggaeAlbum in Argentine History”. The band´s discography continued with "Suena la Alarma" (1997), "Espejitos" (2000) and "Vivo a lo Cafre"(2004). Although Los Cafres were already recognized as the most important reggae band in Argentina their popularity exploded with the launch of "¿Quién da más?" (2004), followed by live album"Luna Park" (2006) plus "Barrilete" and "Hombre Simple",simultaneously released in 2007. By late 2009 they came out with"Classic Lover Covers", featuring rock and pop classics played in reggae style. In 2011 they released their double CD El Paso
Gigante and in 2013, celebrating their 25h anniversary they launched the luxury CD-DVD Los Cafres – 25 Años de Música. Their most recent studio album is Alas Canciones, published in October2016. Los Cafres are: Guillermo Bonetto (vocals), Claudio Illobre(keyboards), Gonzalo Albornoz (bass) y Sebastián Paradisi (drums), más Manuel Fernández Castaño (sax), Willy Rangone (trumpets), Andrés Albornoz (keyboards), Víctor Raffo (rhythmic guitar) and Demian Marcelino (guitar).
Like many bands from Texas, FDA have the privilige to get inspiration and influence from cultures both embedded in Americana and Modern Pop Music as well the well-established musical tastes south of the border. This allows the band to easily create music both in English and Spanish and create songs that are sandboxes for experimentation and enjoyment.
