Tango

History

Tango originated amid European immigrants in Argentina and Uruguay. Usually, the song is played with multiple string instruments, including solo guitars, double bass, and violins. Some of it's influences include Polka, Flamenco, and Habanera. Tango music and dance was especially popular in the Golden Age, which took place in the years 1935-1952. At this point, tango music was performed by orchestras, and bands had over dozens of players in them. Directors of these orchestras were called "King of the Beat."
