Charly Alberti Neo-Psychedelia Artist
Carlos Alberto Ficicchia Gigliotti (born March 27, 1963), known by his stage name Charly Alberti, is an Argentine rock musician, better recognized as the drummer of the influential Argentine rock band Soda Stereo. Because of this, he is considered one of the most important musicians of latin and Spanish rock. He's the oldest son of Dolly Gigliotti and Argentine jazz drummer Tito Alberti. He wanted to be an airpilot, but he couldn't make it because of his daltonism. Unlike his friends, he was never attracted by soccer and he preferred waterpolo and hockey instead, which he used to practice at River Plate, a few blocks away from his home. He started to practice drums driven by his father Tito Alberti. By 1981, Charly met the two guys who became his bandmates for 15 years: Gustavo Cerati and Hector "Zeta" Bosio, together they formed Soda Stereo, one of the most prominent and influential Argentine rock bands of the last two decades. Soda Stereo recorded their first album by 1983, and reached fame by 1985 with their second album "Nada Personal" (Nothing personal), which became number 1 in charts in such countries as Argentina, Peru, Chile, Mexico, Colombia and Venezuela.

Soda Stereo was an Argentine rock band that is considered by critics to be the most important and influential Ibero-American band of all time and a Latin music legend. Formed in Buenos Aires, in 1982, this power trio made up of Gustavo Cerati, Héctor "Zeta" Bosio, and Charly Alberti achieved international success throughout the 1980s and 1990s. They played a very important role in the development and dissemination of Latin and Ibero-American rock. They were the first Latin rock group to achieve success throughout South, Central and North America and even in Spain. They helped popularize the Rock En Español, Ibero-American Rock, and Latin Rock genres to a mainstream audience. The band established what would become the template for many other popular Spanish-speaking rock music groups. They have topped the all-time lists in much of Latin America and in their native Argentina, where they set landmarks in record sales and concert attendances. Gustavo Cerati died on September 4, 2014 at the age of 55, after four years in a coma.
