“The gust, the Tango, that devilry” - Jorge Luis Borges, Argentine writer.
“A sad thought that dances” - Armando Discépolo, popular poet.
Towards the end of the 19th Century, following the wave of European immigrants into Argentina, there was a gradual consolidation of rural and urban music by the citizens of Buenos Aires. Combined with African-based rhythms, these dances, formerly known as Candombe, performed by native black people in the Rio de la Plata region, gradually evolved into the Milonga.
