Carnaval

The importance of the `barrios´ in Buenos Aires developed in the twenties when the mixed immigration wave made a new cultural identity imperative. Right around this time the `murgas´, groups of youngsters that gathered during carnaval to sing and beat drums and pans began to appear on the city streets. Now a days, during February and March, the tradition continues and in every `barrio´you can find a `murga´displaying its colourful rhythms, dances and costumes.
