The home of the Sumo group leader, on Alsina del Lider Street, is transformed every night into a makeshift cultural centre.
A musical example.
Luca Prodan, one of the most important players in the music world, lived and died on Alsina Street. He was the leader of the rock band Sumo, which was very popular in Argentina in the 1980s. This iconic, sensitive, rebellious and engaged artist still represents the emerging cultural movements in Buenos Aires. Years after his untimely death, his house was transformed into a locale promoting culture and art. Every night, it welcomes a large number of people, generally youths and artists, who come here for film screenings, exhibitions, concerts and theatrical performances. This is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the nightlife here. Every weekend, it hosts evenings where friends gather to drink and listen to rock music. Above all, this is one of the places where you can experience the city’s cultural soul at its very best. Behind its doors covered in engravings and paintings that say ‘Luca lives’, is a genuine, unadulterated hotbed of the city’s culture and art.
