Let's Tango

“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.

Milongas were also places, houses where Tango was danced. The word “tango” signifies the sound of various instruments, such as the tambourine. At first, this new music was rejected by society. The dancers (in the beginning only men) performed mostly in questionable neighborhoods and often in house of ill repute. However, with the assistance of poets and composers who endorsed this music, the dance was eventually elevated to a higher level and was established in its proper place in a more, prestigious society throughout the world. 
 
With the following Program, we will submerge and walk you throughout the History of this beautiful, passionate and still sad Music and Dance…
 
                                …. Until you become one of us: a real Tanguerao!
