Buenos Aires Querido

P1050652

Gardel’s face is painted all over the neighborhood of Abasto, where he lived.

During my time in Buenos Aires, I learned a lot about Carlos Gardel, who is an ultra-famous Tango singer. Tango started out in La Boca, a port neighborhood with lots of Italian influence, and it actually started out as a dance between two men to show off their strength and manliness.

However, around the turn of the century, Carlos Gardel started putting words to the Tango songs, and brought it off the streets and into the tango halls and bars.

If you want to learn more about Carlos Gardel and you’re in Buenos Aires, I definitely recommend taking a Buenos Aires Local Tour. Jonathan is very well versed in all things Gardel, and he can give you more insight into this tango singer’s life.

Here is one of Gardel’s most famous songs, a love song to the city of Buenos Aires.
