Mi Buenos Aires querido (tango)
'Mi Buenos Aires querido' (English: My Beloved Buenos Aires) is a tango with music by Carlos Gardel and lyrics by Alfredo Le Pera, released in 1934. It is featured on the soundtrack of its eponymous movie directed by Julio Irigoyen.
Background and Composition
As one of Carlos Gardel's most popular songs, this piece reflects on the beauty of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The lines of the song describe and compare the city to the feelings of love and luck, as well as getting rid of the sorrow present in the city when Gardel returns. The entire song is in a 2/4 time signature and starts in the key of D Major. As the song progresses, the key signature changes to the key of B major.
In the beginning tango was associated to the low income population, performed in the poor neighborhoods (Arravales). Actually, learning to perform and swing tango has become a sign of richness and style.
