Los Prisioneros

 Los Prisioneros was a Chilean new wave band formed in San Miguel, Santiago, Chile in 1983. They began as a local band during the early 1980s, playing small shows in their neighborhood and high school. After selling a limited press number of their first album in Chile under the independent Fusión Producciones label, they signed to EMI in 1985, re-releasing the same album on LP record and cassette formats. From that point on, they reached mainstream success in Chile, then in Peru.

Most of Los Prisioneros' song lyrics have substantial social critiques, which made them popular as Chile was under Pinochet's military dictatorship in the 1980s. In terms of musical development in Chile, Los Prisioneros marked the beginning of a new era by leaving behind folk-inspired music that emerged with Víctor Jara and Violeta Parra in the 1960s. Los Prisioneros' legacy has been recognised by bands such as Glup!, Javiera y Los Imposibles, Lucybell, Los Tetas and La Ley, who together made the tribute album Tributo a Los Prisioneros.

Their albums were completely re-released in remastered Compact Disc format in the early 1990s, once Chile was no longer under a military regime.
