THE NAME: La Yumba is a tango composed by Osvaldo Pugliese in 1946, during the so-called “Golden Age of Tango.” Its name comes from the rhythmic onomatopoeia (zhoóm-ba). “Zhoóm” or “Yum” corresponds to the strong beats, and “Ba” the weak ones. The name plays tribute to the sound of a new era in Argentina, the splendor of tango and the popularity it gained among the working class, as well as to maestro Pugliese, considered a patron saint of musicians. And because we know that to play the yumbeado you have to rosin the bow thoroughly!

Featuring abundant rainfall, three rivers (the Iguazú, Uruguay and Paraná), and a tropical climate, the conditions for the growth of pine trees is optimal in this region – providing unique qualities for the production of rosin.
