The guitar was the original source of rhythm in tango music, until it was ousted by the piano in 1914, and from then on the guitar was only heard as a feature instrument at milongas, if at all. This edition is the second of a series exploring the music of the bailable tradition as played by modern guitarists. That’s this Sunday on Tango Capital, 7:00pm to 8:00pm:
- broadcasting on 2xxfm 98.3 in Canberra,
- streaming live and also on demand from http://www.2xxfm.org.au
