"La cumpersita" means "carnival parade". The tune was originalliy composed for this purpose: as a march for a "murga" (street group) of the carnival in Montevideo.

"Ercalilffo" is the pseudonym of the italian musician Franco Califano (1938-2013). He was composer, musician, producer, actor and writer.
