Tango and its origin in Uruguay

Daniel Indart investigations indicate that was in Montevideo in the Hub of the North where clearly heard and danced the tango for the first time from the twilight of the nineteenth century. Years later the Academy San Felipe and Santiago would be, also in Montevideo , the first to be milongueros.

Uruguayan milonga Buenos Aires Milonga this devoted to Eastern thanking memories evenings and Ceibal. The taste of the oriental with these words painted, is the flavor of what is equal and a bit different. Milonga so many things to be running away; the fifth with gazebo and the tiled plinth. In your band sunrise off the lamp del Cerro and giving joy sand and a wave. Milonga drovers sick and tired of land and road pitaban black snuff in the Paso del Molino. On the shores of Uruguay, I remember that outlaw crossed it, turned on the tail of overo. The first tango milonga which broke, do not care, in the homes of Junín or Yerbal houses. As in the strips of a loop our history is intertwined, the story of a horse it smells of blood and a glory. Milonga of that gauchos they boldly attacked in the pampa, which is sound, or blade Haedo. Who said of whom were those enemy spears that will wear over time whether Ramirez or Artigas? To fight like brothers was good any court; they say those who saw Cagancha his last sun. Shoulder to shoulder or chest to chest, how many times we fight. How many times we ran, how many times we ran! Milonga del forgotten who dies and who does not complain; milonga throat tajeada from ear to ear. Tamer's Milonga Colts hard hat from and happy silver the implement of the dark. Milonga de la milonga in the shadow of ombú, milonga other Hernández who fought in Paysandu. Milonga for time go erasing borders for something they have the same color the two flags. "Argentines live in the lazy security of being a great country, a country whose very excess land could be evidence, if not the offspring of bulls and the ferocity of their plain food. If the rain and the gringo providential providential fail us, Chicago will be the villa of this planet and even a bakery. The East does not. Hence the heroic desire clear and distinct, their determination to be themselves, soul and early bird finder. If many times over seeker was found, envy is base . The sun in the mornings, often over San Felipe de Montevideo before here. " Jorge Luis Borges

Himself has confessed Jorge Luis Borges that without a doubt the milonga born this side of the Rio de la Plata (Uruguay), and has hinted that probably also tango has had the same origin , as he puts it in his "Milonga for the East", mentioning two streets of the ancient Old City of Montevideo.

Also remember that was the sanducero Alfredo Gobbi (see explanation), with his Chilean wife, Flora Rodriguez and Argentine singer-songwriter Angel Villoldo, the pioneer in taking the first expedition tango to Europe. Two "Alfredos Gobbis" and the two Uruguayans. Alfredo Eusebio Gobbi was born in Paysandu, father of Alfredo Gobbi July Floro, who was born in Paris. Alfredo Julio, the son of aliens who temporarily lived in Paris, is registered as a Uruguayan, and that French law, born in Gaul acquires the nationality of their parents, in this case that of his father.
