Argentine Culture


Jun 20, 2006
To understand a culture you must go to its heart and for me Buenos Aires soul comes from Tango . Even though many do not listen or dance Tango you will find that if you spend some time discovering this genre your perceptions and feelings will change over time to this music until the tango comes back and finds you.

My favourite track of Astor Piazolla Haunting and incredibly strong
Caetanos Veloso Sur Incredible version of this classic
Una de las canciones mas desgarradoras y mas bellamente interpretadas de la historia del tango.
Goyeneche lo borda como nadie.

The incredible Cite Tango
