Combining 1960s beat sounds and 1980s hardcore, Los Brujos was an experimental group. In addition, their theatrical performances, where musicians created a special atmosphere around them, made Los Brujos a very visual rock act.
Los Brujos had a good year in 1992; the single "Kanishka" from the album Fin de Semana Salvaje ("Savage Weekend"), was a chart-topper. Somewhat haphazardly produced by the band in terms of the concept, Daniel Melero, the producer, decided to let the album's sound stand as the disorganized naïveté of an adolescent band. It ranks as one of the best New Argentine rock records.
