Soda Stereo is one of the most important Argentinian rock bands of the '80s and early '90s. Their success and influence has spread to the rest of Latin America.
Created as a trio in 1982, dissolved in 1997 and reunited in 2007, the band is formed by guitarist and vocalist Gustavo Cerati, bass player Zeta Bosio (b. Héctor Bosio) and drummer Charly Alberti (b. Carlos Ficcichia). In the beginning they were deeply influenced by the New Wave and bands such as The Cure, The Police, Television and Talking Heads. Musically, they had an ever changing style based on pop that avoided set formulas, exploring and pursuing new sounds (as U2 did on the international scene). Soda Stereo was a light rock band that took elements from different popular music styles such as New Wave, ska, reggae, dark, soul, noise rock and electronica at different points in its career. But the identity of "Soda," as it is often referred to in Argentina, was not rooted solely in music. From the very start of its career, the band paid close attention to all aspects of their image, including music videos, live shows, clothing style and graphic design.
After 10 years they finally reunited for another final Latin American tour (Me Verás Volver).
