Este mes les voy a hablar del carnaval de mi país. 

Se dice de él, que es el más largo del mundo, este año comenzó el 21 de enero y terminara a mediados de marzo. 

¿Qué les parece, no es maravilloso? 

El verano es parte del encanto de vivirlo en mi país, llegan muchos turistas a ver y disfrutar los conjuntos de murgas, humoristas, parodistas y comparsas que cada año se superan en vestimenta y repertorio. 

Las parodias actualizadas con el político, artista y cualquier persona mediática que sea noticia durante un tiempo, será el argumento principal para sus actuaciones. 

Cada noche, durante 45 días aproximadamente, recorrerán “tablados” al aire libre, o en algún teatro de verano, y quizás cada conjunto tenga 4 o 5 actuaciones, seguro que es agotador, pero lo hacen con tanta pasión y amor que no lo tienen en cuenta. 

Vestuario, maquillaje, música, baile, es tratado con mucha profesionalidad para dar el mejor espectáculo, cada año superando el anterior. 

No puede faltar el Concurso Oficial de Agrupaciones Carnavalescas, después de meses de preparación, allí cada conjunto se esforzará para lograr el primer premio en su categoría. 

Montevideo como capital no es la única ciudad que tiene movimiento carnavaléense, Salto, Artigas, Paysandú, Maldonado, y otras, preparan carnaval con mucha implicación, siendo visitadas también por gran cantidad de turistas, en algunas de estas ciudades acuden por día más de 20.000 personas. 

El Desfile de Llamadas, este es el desfile que representa la cultura afro-uruguaya, haciendo una gran demostración del Candombe, género musical que se originó en Montevideo por los esclavos africanos en la época colonial. 

Son muchas las comparsas que salen ese día a hacer tronar sus tambores, con un mínimo de 50 cada una. Los acompañan bailarinas, vedette, escoberos, granillero y mama vieja, personajes que simbolizan la tradición y cultura africana. 

Es un espectáculo digno de ver y oír, cada año son más los periodistas y fotógrafos de diferentes lugares que acuden a plasmar este gran evento lleno de luz y color. 

Quisiera resaltar que el carnaval es una fiesta popular donde se implican muchísimas personas, que hacen mucho sacrificio económico para poder participar cada año. Les mueve la pasión como antes he dicho y quizás pasen todo el año ahorrando pesito a pesito para poder estar allí, disfrutar con amor y trasmitir a su descendencia la tradición que no debe morir nunca.
