Carlos Gardel was a French Argentine singer, songwriter, composer and actor, and the most prominent figure in the history of tango. The statue is a apt tribute to his memory and worth seeing if in the area.

When in Buenos Aires, an amusing and interactive must, to honour the great beginnings and contributions to Tango that we enjoy today and through time.

After shopping at the Abasto Shopping Center, we walked across and behind to Carlos Gardel little street with homage to the great Tango singer, Carlos Gardel. It was fun seeing the statues of a bandoneon, and Tita Merello, along with shops selling Tango nicknacks.

If he had not died in a terrible plane crash as a young man, there would probably NOT be all the hype there is today. But if you go to Abasto, walk the streets and see all the photos and drawinsvand mosaics of him.
