Biography

Buenos Aires, Argentina (1982 – 1997)

Soda Stereo was a rock power trio formed in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1982. Consisting of guitarist and vocalist Gustavo Cerati, bassist Zeta Bosio and drummer Charly Alberti, the band established what would become the template for many other popular Spanish-speaking pop and rock music groups: Clever, often mysterious lyrics, pleasing musical arrangements and an elaborate and glamorous aesthetic image.

In 1997, after a farewell tour through various countries and finally Argentina, the band disbanded. Personal and creative differences brought them to this decision. On September 20, 1997, Soda Stereo played their last show, in front of 75,000 people at the Estadio Monumental (or River Plate Stadium) in Buenos Aires.

A final comeback tour in late 2007 “Me Verás Volver” was also performed live for large audiences throughout Latin America and the US.

With the release of albums such as “Signos”, “Doble Vida”, “Canción Animal” and “Dynamo”, Soda Stereo became one of the most critically acclaimed Argentinean rock bands, being the first one to tour through all of Latin America, -achieving a success that no other local rock band had accomplished before.

Bio:

In 1982, Cerati, Bosio and Alberti recorded some demos and started to play regularly in a Buenos Aires bar called “Zero”. After performing several shows, a CBS producer decided to give the band a chance. In 1984, their eponymous debut album, Soda Stereo was released.
