The Tango tradition of Buenos Aires, August 2022
The Tango culture is immensely present in Buenos Aires, but not everyone dances tango and you won’t find spontaneous dancers in every public square. But, on any given night, there are a number of organized places to dance tango, know as milongas. In some areas you’ll even find tango dancers posing for photos and doing little numbers for clapping tourists. Tune in 8/31 @ 10pm to hear the music that inspires the dance.
