A bit of history about the city of tango
Born in the Río de la Plata in the 19th century, tango is a musical style that results from the fusion between African culture and the local cultures of the gauchos and native peoples, as well as the contribution of mainly European immigrants, Spaniards and Italian and Middle Eastern.
The elegant and passionate movements of tango show the blend of exotic cultures of these early tango dancers. The majestic melody of the music offers listeners a glimpse into the life of early Argentine immigrants. The tango then spread to the wealthier neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.
This type of dance continued to grow and develop, causing a sensation throughout Europe and America in the early 20th century. Argentina’s Golden Age (1930-1950) was a time of prosperity for the country and saw an explosion in popularity and new styles of Argentine tango.
In the 1980s, tango became popular thanks to the international recognition of several Hollywood movies. Today tango schools have been opened all over the world, and in 2009 UNESCO inscribed it on the List of Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
