Tango is the music of Buenos Aires, while the Zamba and the Chacarera is the music of the Argentine countryside. Tango is not only a characteristic dance rhythm, but also the flavor, color and feeling of Buenos Aires. The Argentine Tango is syncopated, sharp and edgy - with sudden changes that introduce free and lyrical moments. It is able to express a wide range of emotions that move from tremendous dramatic tensions to the most intimate sensuality.
