Seru Giran was an Argentine rock band.
Progressive rock band from Argentina formed in the late '70s by Charly Garcia, guitarist David Lebon, bassist Pedro Aznar, and drummer Oscar Moro. After leading La Maquina de Hacer Pajaros, Garcia moved to Brazil to start his new project. In 1978, "Seru Giran" was released after recording sessions in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, U.S., having Daniel Goldberg in charge of its orchestral arrangements. That album was presented first to music journalists and later at Buenos Aires' Luna Park. The press was pleased, but music fans weren't prepared for the experimental style played by the band.
The mixed response drove Seru Giran to release a less complicated album in 1979 called "La Grasa De Las Capitales", presented live at the Buenos Aires' Auditorium. "Bicicleta" came in 1980, followed by a show at the Monterrey Jazz Festival in Rio de Janeiro. "Peperina" was released in 1981. The band decided to break up after two shows at Obras Sanitarias in March 1982. Seru Giran came back with "Seru" in 1992 and "Yo No Quiero Volverme Tan Loco" in the year 2000.
