[Music] An hour with Soda Stereo
Soda Stereo, the trio composed of Gustavo Cerati, Zeta Bosio and Charly Alberti is considered one of the greatest Latin-American rock bands of all time. Argentinian in origin but widely appreciated across the Spanish speaking world, Soda holds a special place in my heart. Their farewell tour was the first ever “real concert” I ever went to: eight-teen year old me was one of the 80 thousand plus people that gathered in Estadio Nacional de Santiago to listen to the trio's last hurrah.
Soda started their career anchoring their sound on classic rock but evolved into synth heavy, mind-bending, ambiance-creating rock. Their style is recognizable across all their discography, composed of great guitar riffs, drums that give songs forward motion and sticky music motifs.
This is my favorite hour of Soda Stereo music:
Until the next adventure,
