Bocanada (Puff) is the second solo album by Argentine rock musician Gustavo Cerati, considered by critics and fans as a highlight in his career and one of his best albums.[1] His first album release after the breakup of Soda Stereo, Cerati had, during this time, been working with Plan V and Ocio, two bands oriented towards electronic music. Raíz was the album's first cut played in radio stations, Puente being the first music video to be released; "Bocanada" had the most music videos produced of any Cerati album to date.

Allmusic granted it 4 1/2 stars out of 5, which was viewed as surprising and unusual, considering it is not very commonplace for Allmusic to give a Latin album such a high score. [2] The veteran Mexican rock critic David Cortés Arce had this to say about it, "Bocanada is a fundamental album in the history of Iberoamerican Rock, in general, in all of the Spanish speaking countries."[3]


In short, the music in this record can be defined as a mix of electronic sounds with rock elements. Also, there are elements of many styles like alternative rock, experimental music, pop music and many others.
