History of Argentine Tango

The Argentine Tango has a rich history from the lives and music of Buenos Aires. As immigrants from Europe and Africa came to Buenos Aires in the 1880’s, they began dancing in the dark lit cafes to tell the story of the male-female relationship. The dance spread to Paris, along with its music which included an accordion like instrument, and became popular across Europe. With the popularity in Europe, the Argentinean upper- class decided to incorporate it into their circles. In 1926, Hollywood capitalized on the popularity of the Tango and used it in the movie “The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse” with actor Rudolph Valentino creating the craze for the dance which is still alive today.
