Serú Girán is the debut album by the eponymous band, brainchild of Charly García (his fourth and last band). It was recorded partly in Brazil and in the United States, and was released in 1978.

Although initially poorly received by critics and fans, in part due to its unconventional symphonic rock influences, the album is now considered one of the finest progressive rock albums in Spanish, containing many Argentine rock standards.
