To live, feel and experience Buenos Aires for real, you have to go see a good tango show
To live, feel and experience Buenos Aires for real, you have to go see a good tango show. The city is fully identified with this genre from the barrio, nostalgic, elegant and sensual that enchants for its elaborate music, poetic lyrics and the movement of its dancers. Many of the world representatives of tango were born and / or lived in Buenos Aires: Aníbal Troilo, Discépolo, Piazzolla, Pugliese, Rivero, Pole Goyeneche... Including Carlos Gardel, who naturalized Argentine and lived most of his life in the city of Buenos Aires.
Tango was born in the second half of the 19th century. It is a hybrid of several musical genres from different parts of the world that was born with the first waves of European immigrants to Argentina. At that time, tango was a marginal genre that was danced in the slums, brothels, ports, taverns and prisons. But around 1920, while Buenos Aires lived a literary and cultural renaissance, the tango began to shine in the night of the city and became the favorite genre of all kinds of gatherings, meetings, parties and concerts. Today one can relive that golden age of tango in some redoubts of Buenos Aires. In shows with professional dancers or in milongas, where the neighbors of the area are encouraged to test their skills in the 2x4 on the dance floor, for the sheer pleasure of vibrating with the accord of the bandoneon. You can also see shows “to the cap” on public roads (for example, on Florida Street), shows a little more intimate in some classic cafes, others more spectacular in large stages, with live music or with a track, with singers who accompany, with several couples at once... The options, in Buenos Aires, really are varied and for all tastes.
