Below you will find a selection of our most popular authentic ARGENTINIAN TANGO bands and dancers.
The haunting and seductive sound of the Tango from Buenos Aires, Argentina, has become popular throughout the Western world.
Argentine tango is a social dance and musical style, played by a dance orchestra. Its lyrics and music are marked by nostalgia, expressed through melodic instruments like the bandoneon. Originating at the ending of the 19th century in the working class suburbs of Buenos Aires it quickly grew in popularity and was internationally spread. Among its leading figures are the songwriter Carlos Gardel and composer Astor Piazzola.
It is said that the close proximity in which the dancers dance, originated from the overcrowded dance-floors. There are several forms of Tango, including Milonga and Tango Nuevo, and several touring Tango shows have demonstrated the spectacularly theatrical and improvised forms of the dance.
Listen to the various bands' audio samples, and if you are in any doubt contact us for advice on their suitability.
