A BIT ABOUT TANGO

Argentina and Uruguay have been exporting their talent to the world from the early 1900’s making tango universally known in all continents.  Prominent names in the tango arena such as Villoldo, Francisco Canaro, Carlos Gardel, Gerardo Matos and Astor Piazzola are widely known around the globe. People from all over the world and different cultures are attracted by the genre and thousands of Milongas – or houses where tango is danced – exist in distant countries such as Russia, Japan, China, Australia, Turkey, Morocco, Germany, etc.  In 2009, this deep-rooted tradition of dance and music from the Rio de la Plata basin was declared by the United Nations as part of the world’s “intangible cultural heritage”. For the last two decades, the dance form has been expanding through the popular milongas established by tangueros throughout the world.
