The vast plains between the populated centers of Central Argentina and the Patagonia are called the pampa. In this tango, Schifrin conveys the feeling of infinity, of vast spaces and solitude by transforming the title into "Pampas" in plural. There is a feeling of nostalgia but also of hope iwhich reflects the echoes of Argentinean folk music.
