On what would have been Gustavo Cerati’s 61st birthday, Mexican independent label Bela Records is releasing a tribute to the late Argentine rock legend. The album titled Gustavo Stereo features 27 up-and-coming artists from around the globe, covering songs from Soda Stereo as well as his solo career. It’s a fitting tribute considering the pioneering nature of the music Cerati gave us in life. Cerati’s son Benito has given his blessing for the album’s release.
While most of the artists are quite new, they offer spirited versions of both hits and deep cuts. The bands and musicians featured on Gustavo Stereo hail not only from Latin America, but also the United States, Europe, and even New Zealand and Japan. It speaks volumes about the impact of Cerati’s music throughout the years. Hopefully, the album will take Gustavo’s influence to a new century.
The artists that contributed to the album include El Mundo de Sofía (Cuba), Mad In Poland (Polonia / Reino Unido), Mono Zen (México), Limbo (Argentina), Alice Quint (Colombia), Oriana Setz (Ecuador / Nueva Zelanda), 3 Golpes (Chile), Indra T.Syoji (Japón), Giuseppe Vorro (Italia), 18 Horas (Bolivia), Galzandorj (Estados Unidos), Dizzy Espeche (Argentina), Temporal (Argentina), Emmanuel Cauvet (Argentina), Mariana Viera Campbell (Argentina), Aldo Muñoz (México), Pit Moreno (México), Mr. Jhomba (México), Trampa Mortal (México), Bultrago (México), Gasú Siqueiros (México), Kello González (México), and Pancho Campos (México / Polonia).
