La cumparsita is one of the most well-known Tango songs ever. It was composed by Gerardo Matos Rodríguez.

The cumparsita is usually the last song played after the last tanda at a milonga.

"Cumparsa" (or "comparsa") is a Lunfardo word for a group of people fancy-dressed (in masks) for a carneval, "cumparsita" is the diminutive form.
