The remarkable CD Estaciones by Duo Scofano Minetti reveals a world of images, colors and smells that transports the listener to Northeast Argentina and its unique cultural traditions. It is clear that the traditional Chamamé pulsates inside the veins of the new chamber-music composed by Scofano and masterfully played by Minetti and Scofano. Both artists embody, by birth or acculturation, the cultures of Corrientes as well as the surrounding cultures of Brazil and Uruguay. This is an outstanding work and a fascinating window into culture changing before our eyes and ears.
