説到阿根廷,一定不可錯過“探戈”- TANGO;說到TANGO,不到不說的一個人物就是 CARLOS GARDEL,這個悲劇性的人物的出身至今不詳,“原產地”不詳,身份也不祥,不過在TANGO的歷史上可以說是一個重量級的人物,令中外熟知TANGO的粉絲所知,更是阿根廷人尊崇的大師,TANGO文化成爲阿根廷的一個招牌,CARLOS GARDEL成爲招牌上的至尊人物。

先說說他的3個不祥:
1。出身不詳:共有3种不同的説法,分別是A,出生法國,目前在其年幼時帶來阿根廷。B.出身于烏拉圭,證據是當時申請阿根廷國籍的時候,他是這樣填寫的。C.出身于阿根廷,因爲有人問他這個問題的時候他總是這樣回答:
When asked about his nationality, Gardel would answer, “I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the age of two years and a half…” It is thought that Gardel gave an evasive answer in order to hide the circumstances of his birth to a single mother.

2.出生年月也不詳。正因爲出生年月不詳,搞到出身年月也不詳。

3. 身份不明。我這裡指的是他的性取向。給我們講解的導遊說,据記載,在他30嵗時之和一個13嵗的小姑娘“糾纏過”幾年,傳聞他是同性戀。

不管這位大師有多少不詳,外人看的還是他在TANGO事業上的貢獻。大師于1935年死于哥倫比亞的空難,英年早逝!

大師自小也是清苦出身,跟隨母親在阿根廷度過童年,在出名之前都是居無定所。所以,這次和同學參觀的只是大師買給媽媽的一所房子,后來粉絲把他們收集的照片,新聞等撿出來,這就成了今天大師的故居了。

下面我張貼了Wiki的介紹和他的幾首代表作品。

Carlos Gardel (11 December 1887/1890124 June 1935 Medellín, Colombia) is perhaps the most prominent figure in the history of tango. Although his birthplace is disputed, he lived in Argentina from childhood and acquired Argentine citizenship in 1923. He grew up in theAbasto neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, located near the Central Market of Fruit and Vegetables, an enormous art-deco styled building which today is a shopping mall. He attended Pio IX Industrial high-school located in the Almagro neighbourhood. He died in an airplane crash at the height of his career, becoming an archetypal tragic hero mourned throughout Latin America. For many, Gardel embodies the soul of the tango style that originated in the barrios of Buenos Aires and Montevideo at the end of the 19th century. He is commonly referred to as “Carlitos”, “The King of Tango” and ironically “El Mudo” (The Mute).

The unerring musicality of Gardel’s baritone voice and the dramatic phrasing of his lyrics made miniature masterpieces of his hundreds of three-minute tango recordings. Together with lyricist and long-time collaborator Alfredo Le Pera, Gardel wrote several classic tangos, most notably: Mi Buenos Aires querido, Cuesta abajo, Amores de estudiante, Soledad, Volver, Por una cabeza and El día que me quieras.
