The meaning of the word
In Argentina, the word Tango roughly started in the 1890s. In 1902 the Teatro Opera started to include tango in their balls. Initially, tango was just one of the many available local dances, but it soon became popular throughout society. Theatres and street barrel organs spread it from the suburbs to the working-class slums. This is where it was packed with hundreds of thousands of European immigrants.
The origin of Tango
The present forms of Tango developed in Argentina from the mid 19th century. However, Tango derives from the Cuban, habanera, the Argentine milonga and candombe. However, it was the African community in Buenos Aires, that kicked started and influenced Tango. By combining both ancient African rhythms and music from Europe, Tango is now seen as one of the most skilled dances to learn. We can all agree it is so amazing to watch.
