Seru Giran: the Argentine Beatles

Serú Girán is, without a doubt, one of the most important bands in our rock. We tell you a little about his history and his legacy.


Each of our stories is crossed by the story of what is happening around us. The one with the  rock  bands too. Serú Girán is, without a doubt, one of the most important bands in our rock. It's for Charly, David, Pedro and Oscar. Because in it these four talents were combined in a harmony that is difficult to repeat. But also, because they knew how to put art and lyrics to one of the saddest times in our country, they knew how to tell the countless, and make that beautiful.

In those times, it was said that  Charly García , David Lebón, Pedro Aznar and Oscar Moro were the Argentine Beatles. The group was formed in the late 1970s, after Charly finalized his project with The Bird Making Machine. With the arrival of the dictatorship, it needed new air. He then went to Brazil with David Lebon. Then Moro joined and, a little later, Aznar. This is how they started this new musical stage that would write a fundamental page in the history of national rock: Serú Girán.

His songs, with soft melodies and hard lyrics, had a lot of impact on the people of the time. Today are true classics: “Seminare”, “Eiti-Leda”, “Alice in the Country”, “Peperina”, “How much longer it will take”, “Friday 3 a.m.”, “The fat of the capitals” and “Do not cry for me, Argentina”, among others.

In 1982, while Argentina fought in the  Falkland War , Aznar decided that this stage was coming to an end. He left the band to travel to study music in the  United States , and his teammates knew that it would not be possible to replace him. Everyone went his way. But Seru will stay forever.
