Babasónicos Tour Dates

Babasónicos is an Argentine rock band, formed in the early 1990s along with others such as Peligrosos Gorriones and Los Brujos. After emerging in the wave of Argentine New Rock bands of the late '80s and early '90s, Babasonicos became one of the banner groups of the "sonic" underground rock movement in Argentina in the late 1990s. The band name refers partly to Sai Baba, the Indian guru, and partly to The Jetsons, whose Spanish version is called Los Supersónicos. The lead singer Adrián "Dárgelos" Rodríguez and the keyboardist Diego "Uma-T" Tuñón initially decided to create a New Wave style, which wouldn't follow the established Argentine music. The other official band members are: Diego "Uma" Rodríguez, Diego "Panza" Castellano, Mariano "Roger" Domínguez, and recently deceased Gabriel "Gabo" Manelli. For their second album, Trance Zomba, they incorporated a guest DJ, "DJ Peggyn" who would eventually remain as a band member until after releasing Miami. This same year the band saw the departure of their longtime manager Cosme. In 1999, they collaborated with Ian Brown on a song that bears their name on his album Golden Greats.
