THE SODA STEREO ADVENTURE
The music of legendary rock group Soda Stereo was – and continues to be – the soundtrack of the lives of millions of Latin Americans. The trio formed in 1982 by Gustavo Cerati, Héctor “Zeta” Bosio and Charly Alberti branded into history the sounds of the post-military dictatorship decade of the 1980s, the golden age of Argentine rock.
Soda Stereo’s debut was marked by a thirst for change, boldness, irreverence, and great pop hits with a post-punk energy. The band established a strong bond with fans and attained nationwide popularity. Album after album, Soda Stereo continued to reinvent itself with new sounds and new looks largely inspired by the British new wave scene, seducing new generations of fans along the way.
The band covered a staggering amount of stylistic ground throughout their career and had a discography that was on par with their British and American peers. Soda Stereo soonbecame the most popular rock band in Latin America with an influence that extends to nowadays.
