Characteristics

Tango comes from the soul and is hard to dance with feeling and proper carriage. Tango music is usually written in 2/4 or 4/4 timing. The first teaching rhythm in tango is slow, slow, quick, quick, slow....
Some tangos contain more complex rhythms and longer phrases of double-time staccato accents depending. Although some describe music with the ric-tic-tic rhythm as 2x4, the characteristic rhythm of this music is actually created through a variation in accented beats that yields an alternation of single-time and double-time rhythms.
