On April 19th 1917, almost one hundred years ago, La Cumparsita Tango had its official debut.
This happened in the old “Confiteria La Giralda”, on Plaza Independencia in Montevideo.
La Giralda then disappeared and in its place, the Palacio Salvo was erected. The exact place where that orchestra played what would later be the Tango of all Tangos was lost in time and memory.
However today, that historic place has been recovered. All visitors arriving in Montevideo, will be able to visit TANGO MUSEUM – LA CUMAPRSITA and say with all certainty "I visited the place where Tango was born”.
