Tango Did You Know … ?

Posted: 15:30, Monday 20 January 2014 by Janett Jackson

Updated: 16:02, Monday 20 January 2014 by Janett Jackson

‘La cumparsita’ (The Little Carnival Procession) is the most famous tango of all time. It is to the tango what the ‘Blue Danube’ is to the waltz.

Written around 1917 by the Uruguayan Gerardo Hernan Matos Rodríguez (March 28, 1897 – April 25, 1948) as a marching tune for the student federation to which he belonged, it was turned into a tango by the bandleader Roberto Firpo (May 10, 1884 – June 14, 1969).

In 1924 lyrics by Pascual Contursi (November 18, 1888 – May 28, 1932) and Enrique Pedro Maroni (17 March 1887 – 30 December 1957) were added and the song was recorded by Carlos Gardel (born Charles Romuald Gardes; 11 December 1890 – 24 June 1935), with guitar accompaniment.

Ref: Azzi, Maria Susana. 1995. Part 111 The golden age and after: 1920s – 1990s. Pp. 114 to 160 in Tango: the dance, the song, the story, edited by S. Collier. London: Thames and Hudson. P 134.
