Bringing a different perspective to the music of tango, The Tango Decades is an 8-part series focusing on a horizontal slice of what was hot, decade by decade, as tango blossomed over 40 years. This fifth episode is focused on 1945 to 1949, and explores how the role of the singer was linked to developments in recording technologies. That’s this Sunday on Tango Capital, 7:00pm to 8:00pm:
