Black roots of Tango


In this episode we discussed the origins of this lovely music called tango. Few people know that the major influence of this music is actually African, and it evolved from the candombe. We talked about how this marginal music and culture surged from so many different sources like that afro Argentinean, the European and the native Argentinean coming from the gauchos, and we dove deeper on the black culture of the 1880s to analyze how it nurtured this genre.
