Sign the petition.

Currently, social networks have a lot of power to attract people and today, through a group of Facebook about soda Stereoa man called Efren Jimenez shared a request from the platform change.org so that August 11 is declared as the Gustavo Cerati International Day.

This request reads:

Music is a universal language that unites nations and cultures, regardless of creed, age, race or social status. The request to declare August 11 as Gustavo Cerati International Day obeys the objective of providing recognition to the artistic and musical legacy of a universal artist such as he is. Gustavo Adrian Cerati.”

So as of the moment this note is written, there are a total of 11,562 people who have signed the aforementioned petition. But would you support it?

Gustavo Ceratiborn on August 11, 1959 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, was the leader, guitarist and vocalist of the renowned band soda Stereo. His death was unfortunate, after having been left in a coma due to a stroke after finishing a concert in which he promoted his latest album. Natural force (2009), died due to respiratory arrest on September 4, 2014.

For this reason, this request is striking, since probably for fans of this artist the musician should be recognized for his technique and ability to compose internationally renowned songs such as “Light Music”, “Nothing personal” either “American blinds”. Although surely for others it seems unnecessary.

The truth is that music does bring people together and this can be an opportunity to pay tribute to the artist for everything done in his country and in ours, during the time of the Rock in your language in the 80s. So if you want to support…
