Song Title: Tango - Argentino Paso - The history of Tango

"The deep roots of Tango lie in African slavery. The Tango is a mixture of dances peculiar to Blacks in Haiti, Cuba and Argentina. Both the music and the dance were intense and erotic. Tango was first danced in Europe before World War I. It originates from Buenos Aires (Argentina) where it was first danced in the ghetto of Buenos Aires. It was then known under the name of "Baile con corte" (dance with a rest). During the Spanish American War, a popular dance called the "Habanera del Cafe" appeared which the prototype of the Tango was.

Tango dance exemplifies the communion of the male and the female form with a rare passion, exuberance, style and sensuality. It is a wonderful expression of human emotions of love and attraction, along with flair for skillful movement and artistic talent. Argentine Tango: A dance created by the Gauchos in Buenos Aires was actually an attempt on their part to imitate the Spanish dance "Danza" except that they danced it in a closed ballroom position. The dancers remain in traditional closed position throughout and express both the legato and staccato aspects of the music."
