THE CENTENARY OF THE ‘CUMPARSITA’

The score of Cumparsita, the most famous tango in the world, has been copied along 82 meters on a street in the Uruguayan town of San Gregorio de Polanco, in the department of Tacuarembó, in commemoration of the centenary of its composition.

 


This mural, 82 x 9 metres, was made in three days by a dozen people and shows, note by note, the music that Uruguayan composer Gerardo Matos Rodríguez wrote in 1917.

The staves, with their bars and notes, on a white background, were painted between Friday 14 and Sunday 16 April, by a team of a dozen people coordinated by the association “Express Culture”, sources from the Ministry Of Tourism of Uruguay told EFE.

The mural occupies the one block street of a central street of San Gregorio de Polanco, known for being the Uruguayan city with more murals per square kilometer, although this is the first one that is painted horizontally and not vertically.

San Gregorio de Polanco, located on the banks of the Rio Negro, 370 kilometers north of Montevideo, is considered a museum of outdoor visual arts that maintains more than a hundred murals on the fronts of houses and walls, some of them of well-known plastic artists like Clever Lara, Tola Invernizzi and Julio Uruguay Alpuy.
