World Music Exploration 2010/11 Week 8 - Babasonicos

We wrap up this month's exploration of Argentine music this week with the band, Babasónicos. This rock band came together in the 1990's and quickly became one of the leading groups in the "sonic" underground rock movement in Argentina.

"Babasónicos" refers to Sai Baba, an the Indian guru, and the Spanish version of The Jetsons, Los Supersónicos. The band members are: Adrián "Dárgelos" Rodríguez (lead singer), Diego "Uma-T" Tuñón (keyboards), Diego "Uma" Rodríguez (guitar/lead singer), Diego "Panza" Castellano (drums), Mariano "Roger" Domínguez (guitar) and Gabriel "Gabo" Manelli (bassist). Manelli passed away in 2008 from Hodgkin's Disease.

Babasónicos has won numerous MTV Music Awards in Latin America.
