Tango music was born in the suburbs, notably in the brothels of the Junín y Lavalle district and in the arrabales (poorer suburbs). Its sensual dance moves were not seen as respectable until adopted by the Parisian high society in the 1920s, and then enthusiasm for tango grew all over the world. In Buenos Aires, tango dancing schools (known as academias) were usually men-only establishments. Starting in the 1920s, the Buenos Aires style of tango music evolved into an elaborate genre.
In its heyday, tango had many famous orchestras such as those led by AníbalTroilo and Juan D’Arienzo, and singers such as Carlos Gardel and Edmundo Rivero. Tango enjoyed a resurgence in global popularity later in the century due almost exclusively to Astor Piazolla and his development of the ‘tango nuevo’ style. Buenos Aires holds an annual “Tango Day” each December 11 which is quite a spectacle! In San Telmo, Sundays are devoted to tango shows on the streets and antiques trade in the bazaars around Dorrego Square.
Argentine tango music is much more varied than ballroom tango music. A large amount of tango music has been composed by a variety of different orchestras over the last century. Not only is there a large volume of music, there is a breadth of stylistic differences between these orchestras as well, which makes it easier for Argentine tango dancers to spend the whole night dancing only Argentine tango.
