Home to some of the most biodiverse areas in the world, the Neotropics stretches from Central America in the North, west to the Caribbean and the down to South America almost reaching the Antarctic at its southern tip.

The folowing link will take you to the Tigre Wetland, in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Our friend Sebastián Pisani who lived near Tigre created the songs you can find on this website.
This album is called “Canciones del Humedal” (or “Wetland Songs” in English) and it is composed of 27 songs that will transport you to the Tigre Wetland, to experience the fauna and flora we can find there and to imagine the local communities who live there…
We want to thank Sebastián for sharing his music with us!
