Sera Cero followed with a tribute to the legendary Soda Stereo. From the first notes of “De Música Ligera” it was clear that they had mastered the essence of the Argentine rock giants. The band’s tight instrumentation and the lead singer’s, Tony Ascanio’s striking vocal delivery transported the audience back to Soda Stereo‘s glory days. With the help of David Elbert, keys, and Diego Fernandez, guitar, “Persiana Americana” and “En la Ciudad de la Furia” were standout moments, with the crowd dancing and singing along in a euphoric tribute to Gustavo Cerati and his bandmates.
