Los Speakers (the Speakers) was a Colombian rock band from the 1960s.

Much of their recorded material consisted of covers of popular bands of the era including the Byrds and the Beatles, as well as a couple of obscure Spanish group Los Brincos. The original material is noted for spooky downcast melodies and arrangements.
