Tango and Nightlife: Tango came into being in the 19th century from the combination of different styles danced in the poor areas of the town. In the beginning it was danced by male couples and played with a flute, a violin and a guitar. Flute was later on replaced by a type of accordion called “bandoneon”, which ultimately gave tango its distinctive hallmark. Tango developed with the nostalgia and melancholy contributed by immigrants, and gave rise to most important songwriters and performers such as Astor Piazzolla and Anibal Troilo.
The greatest tango singer of all times has always been and will always be Carlos Gardel. There is a tourist itinerary that evokes the importance of the so called “Zorzal Criollo” (Creole Thrush) in the life of Buenos Aires.
