Argentina’s Latin Grammy-nominated vocalist explores a deeply intimate terrain of love, loss and passion in an exquisite, eclectic and soulful CD from Buenos Aires produced by famed singer-songwriter Raul Carnota.
The new album from celebrated Argentine vocalist and Latin Grammy nominee María Volonté is her most personal yet, featuring four of her own compositions along with exquisite versions of classic songs from Latin America.
Sudestada is an intense album. The title comes from the south-easterly gales that whip the shores of Buenos Aires where María lives. As she writes in the liner notes, “All I have seen, all I dreamed, all I lived, all I saved and all I lost, resides in these beloved songs.”
In Sudestada, María continues to put the rich musical traditions of the Rio de la Plata region – tango, milonga, chacarera, candombe – to good use as she explores a deeply personal terrain of femeninity, desire, love, loss and passion. Guest artists include guitarist Lucho Gonzalez on Chabuca Granda’s “La Flor de la Canela,” bandoneonist Walter Ríos on “Los Mareados,” and Uruguayan electric bassist Daniel Maza. The album also includes a duet with tango singer Caracol, a song the two singers composed together. The album was produced by famed singersongwriter and producer Raúl Carnota.
