Cambalache is the name of a tango written in 1935 by Argentinian Enrique Santos Discepolo.  

It focuses on 20th-century corruption, division, and it denounces the lack of moral values. 

The lyrics seem so timely to me, especially in light of the results and the division caused by our recent election, and they are the inspiration for this series of works on paper, canvas, and the installation.
