Los Caparos Reviews “Eight powerful men spreading magnetizing energies that makes you move your feet, on stage and beyond.” Irit Rivner - MAHARIV “Los Caparos' sound is something so unique that it almost never gets heard in Israel and Caparos do it in the coolest, most fun way you can imagine” Musicpage.co.il "Los Caparos doesn't give a damn. they got on to the ethnic rock movement, a combination of reggae, rock, dub, ska and jungle, along with a Russian temperament they wants to take over the streets, to impose disorder and to entertain, because as Los Caparos say – everything is "kakamaika" (nonsense). It's rhythmic, it makes your feet move on their own, it draws you to the circle. So join and sing along - CCCP" Yossi Harsonsky

About BOOKIT Live "Bookit" began its officially way as a musicians management and booking agency back in April of 2008. The company took on an important mission: to promote Israeli music and to march the music scene towards a new era, whether it's exposing the audience to alternative beats and refreshing bands, or pushing the existed scene one step forward. "Bookit", who had gone through several configurations, was established by Sharon Mellul who had ran the company through each and every step of the way: back when it was called "Dam Dam" and "Blue Sun". In spite of its short term activity, "Bookit" had gained lots of experience: managing musicians, producing events and of course scheduling gigs. "Bookit" carefully selects its artists, when the musical range in the agency is wide and differing: rusted Israeli rock, contemporary indie-pop, middle-eastern sounds and even ska and dub. Among the artists who are signed at "Bookit" you can find Dan Toren, Emily Karpel, Reines Girls, Los Caparos and many more.
