He National Institute of Music (Inamu) together with the Secretariat of Cultures of La Rioja will present on Wednesday on Music Day and will launch in digital format “Heart of February”a book that spreads the compositions of Camilo Mattafundamental artist of Riojan music and culture.
This publication contains sheet music and a songbook, work carried out by Viviana Bognar, Luis Chazarreta and Leonel Guzmanwho worked on transcription, encryption and diagrams for guitar.
This task is mainly due to the initiative of Bognar (musician, manager and companion in life of Camilo Matta) who generously gave the lyrics, melodies and compositions so that all of Argentina can interpret the work of this endearing artist who dedicated much of his life to prioritize and disseminate Argentine music with folk roots, placing it at the service of vocal art.
“Heart of February” also incorporates testimonies and reflections from colleagues, photographs and written material about Matta’s work.
These elements provide greater depth when it comes to understanding the quality of his work, his musical and cultural identity, as well as his respect for popular music, preservation and dissemination. This is a recognition of Matta’s prolific career and boundless creativity.
The digital book will be available for free download and will serve as teaching material for musical performers, teachers, schools, libraries and the general public interested in learning about and appreciating the work of this outstanding musician.
On Wednesday it will have its presentation at 11 at Café Literario (Paseo Cultural) and at 9:30 p.m. at Quincho Cultural, both located in the city of Ciudad de La Rioja.
