Argentine Tango

Argentine Tango often refers to the "Tango Trinity" or all "Three Faces of Tango": The Tango, The Milonga and the Tango Vals. These dances evolved at the end of the nineteenth century in Buenos Aires and Montevideo and are danced to Tango Music.

For the purpose of music4dance, we're using the category of Argentine Tango for what Argentine Tango dancers call just "Tango." It is a dance performed in a close embrace to traditional Tango music in 2/4 or 4/4 time.

Like many dance styles, there is plenty of debate as to what to include an exclude in a category. For our purposes, we're including most of what has over the years been termed Nuevo Tango music but placing Neo Tango in its own category.
