Los Kjarkas is a Bolivian band from Capinota (a Province in the department of Cochabamba), one of the most popular Andean pop bands in the country's recent history. An unauthorised translation of their song Llorando se fue by French producers Jean Karakos and Olivier Lorsac resulted in Kaoma's hit, Lambada. Don Omar's Taboo and Jennifer Lopez's single On The Floor samples Los Kjarkas's single Llorando se fue. After a successful lawsuit, Kaoma paid up and licensed the song. Kjarkas have also founded two schools teaching Andean folk music; the Musical School of Kjarkas (Lima, Peru) and La Fundación Kjarkas (Ecuador). They have toured across Japan, Europe and Scandinavia, the United States and South America, they currently have over 350 songs composed by them.
