Note:  What is "La Murga"?  Wikipedia says, "Murga is a form of popular musical theatre performed primarily in Montevideo, Uruguay during the Carnival season".  However, someone on "Yahoo Questions" added on the following information:  "What people in Uruguay mean by murga is not the same of what people in Panama and Puerto Rico call murga. [In Panama and Puerto Rico] The murga is an orchestra that ensembles the use of trumpets, trombone, drums and other percussion instruments, for instance the Key or "calve".  The murgas gather around 15 to 20 musicians. They are typical to appear during Carnivals, where they play for 4 days in a row. In countries like Puerto Rico, it is also accustomed that the murgas play in Christmas. One thing is that the murga can play without a stage. They move from one place to another. They are loud and fun."
