Segundo Nitor and Angela Zammataro became Los Caracoles after meeting in a Chilean choir in Melbourne in 1994. They had both had vast experience as singers but Segundo was primarily a poet. In 1995, after moving to Mossman, his poetry began to turn into music. Los Caracoles means “The snails”. The name was inspired by the Latin American idea of the snail which travels slowly (but surely) through the continent, spreading peace and hope.\r\nLos Caracoles have performed in numerous community events, venues and festivals since then, including a tour of Chile, appreances at Cairns, Yungaburra, Palm Cove, Port Douglas, Kuranda festivals and Latin festival. \r\nIn recent years they have been joined by The Montgomery Bros, a young group of talented multi instrumentalists.
