Bacilos was a latin music group based in Miami, Florida, United States.

The band was formed in 1995 by three students of the University of Miami and was named after the Spanish word for bacillus. Originally a quartet, the band drew influences from Cuban folk singer Silvio Rodríguez and Argentinian rock singer Fito Páez. The band eventually became a trio consisting of Colombian singer and guitarist Jorge Villamizar, bassist André Lopes and percussionist José Javier Freire before releasing an independent album Madera in 1999.

Bacilos signed with Warner Music in 2000. The selftitled album Bacilos was actually a re-edition of Madera and was nominated for two Latin Grammy awards and went gold in Colombia. The single Tabaco y chanel was widely played on Latin radio stations and the success of their major label debut earned them a slot as support artist on a world tour by Spanish artist Alejandro Sanz.

In 2002 Caraluna added to their reputation winning a Grammy for best Latin pop album and making the Billboard Latin album charts. The album also won best album at the Latin Grammies and their song Mi Primer Millón a humorous account of trying to make it in the music industry, again went top 10 in Chile and made the Billboard and world Latin music charts in 2003a humorous account of trying to make it in the music industry, again went top 10 in Chile and made the Billboard and world Latin music charts in 2003 and won best tropical song. The single Caraluna went to #1 in Chile, top 10 in Argentina and charted in the world and Billboard Latin charts in late 2002 and early 2003.

Sólo Un Segundo was the third single from the album going top 10 in Argentina and top 20 in Chile. Bacilos also featured on a duet with Celso Piña which made the Chilean Top 20 in May 2004.

Sin Vergüenza was released in late 2004. The first single Pasos de Gigante went to number 1 in Argentina, #2 in Chile and made top 10 on Billboard's Latin singles charts in late 2004. It has been nominated for a Grammy award for best Latin pop album.

The band announced that they would break up and completed their final tour in the United States on December 15, 2006, when they played at La Covacha, in Miami. Their final live show was on February 21, 2007, at the Festival Internacional de la Canción de Viña del Mar, in Chile.
