The Argentine Tango is a dance of Passion, grace, speed and intricate steps. It is intensely individualistic and improvisational. The music is derived from black African rhythms, the melodies of southern Italy, Cuba and the Andalusian Tango. The theme of tango is passion, emotion and longing. It is reflected in the somber strains of the bandoneon, an accordion like instrument that breathes and signs with the pining of a lost love. Born around 1880 in the River Plate Region, Tango is an exclusively urban phenomenon whos major development took place in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Initially only performed by amateurs, the tango was danced solely among men, who perfected their steps to impress the prostitutes at underground brothels. Women were included at the turn of the century, and the aristocracy embraced the dance in the late 1910s. 100 years since its birth, the tango is both the classic and modern form is again an integral part of Argentine culture, reclaimed by an older generation and discovered by the young.
