Two great ARGENTINE TANGO videos

It’s been a while since I showcased some examples of a major obsession of mine: the Argentine tango. Here are two.

All art forms evolve. The tango does too, both the music and the dance. The first music example is from its very beginnings, one of the first true tangos, La Cumparsita, composed by Uruguayan Gerardo Matos Rodríguez. Almost everyone has heard it in one of its many incarnations.

The second example showcases one of the later tango compositions (from 1942!): Así Se Baila El Tango. It incorporated some very modern musical elements that today’s frontline tango composers are still exploring. (The dance shown here also has modern dance fusions – some introduced to tango danza as early as the 1940s in BsAs.)
