Tango In The 21st century (IV)

One of the joys of travelling to Buenos Aires is the opportunity to dance to live music most nights of the week.

Live music was of course the standard in the hey-day of tango, bringing variations in beat and styling that offer the dancer opportunities to improvise. This is the fifth in a series of special editions exploring the music of these newer ensembles. That’s this Sunday on Tango Capital, 7:00pm to 8:00pm:
