Eruca Sativa

Gabriel Pedernera was born on March 19, 1986 in Cordoba Capital. he is a musician, producer and mixer.

The only child of music-loving parents, they transmitted the passion and love for music to him since he was a child. At the age of 8 he began to take drum lessons and within a few months he was already playing live with various folklore and jazz groups.

In 1997, he made his first tour with the group Gualicho through the north of Argentina when he was only 11 years old, and at that moment he decided that this was going to be his profession. In 2001 he was summoned to be part of œArmando Flores, a well-known Cordovan rock group with which he recorded an album and toured throughout the country until 2005. In 2006, he produced his first album for Enrico Barbizi, a singer and composer from Cordoba, who trusted Gabriel to carry out his album, "Tente En Pie". From that moment he began his path as a music producer.

In 2007, he was the winner of the Solidrummer contest organized by the Argentinean battery factory Solidrums, being chosen out of more than 150 drummers from all over the country. Arriving at the end of that same year, he formed (together with Lula Bertoldi and Brenda Martin) ERUCA SATIVA.

Eruca Sativa is a band formed in 2007 in the city of Cordoba, Argentina by Lula Bertoldi, Brenda Martin and Gabriel Pedernera. In its 13 years of life, Eruca Sativa released 6 albums, garnered 7 Latin Grammys nominations and won 5 Gardel Awards, including "Best Rock Song" and "Best Rock Album" among other categories. Eruca also made tours in these 13 years in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Mexico, Colombia and Spain.

As a producer he has worked with many groups and artists. In 2020 he was the winner of the Gardel Award for Producer of the Year, along with 6 other statuettes that he won for the album he produced for David Lebon, œLebon & Co.

His studio Acampis is not only the place where he usually works as a producer and mixer, but it also became the home of his online seminar, "La Cancion Manda", a cycle of monthly talks that Gabriel has been giving since May 2020, a space in which hundreds of musicians and producers from Argentina and the world participate.

    My daughter Nina is my greatest inspiration.


    I believe that one of the most important things for being a good musician is being a good person. It starts there for me - we want to hang and spend time with good people. Then, below that, is all the rest.


    My favorite Zildjians at the moment are the K Sweets and the Avedis Vintage.
