The History of Tango in Music and Visuals

The audiovisual setting during the Tango Ball celebrating the Day of Tango will be specially selected and compiled so as to represent the history of the danceable tango-music. As usual, the musical format of the evening will follow the tradition of the classic Buenos Aires milonga with tandas (a group of 3-5 musical pieces performed by the same orchestra) and cortinas (short musical intermissions between two tandas). The only difference will be that this time the tandas will be ordered chronologically, starting with the danceable tango from the beginning of 20th century and ending with music by contemporary tango ensembles. Each tanda will be accompanied with visuals presenting the performing orchestra or other important personalities and moments from the time of the performance.
