Did you know that the Argentine tango evolved out of the immigrant culture of late 19th Century? It began in Buenos Aires and spread throughout the “Río de la Plata,” the geographic area that connects Argentina and Uruguay. Immigrants from Italy, Spain, Russia, Poland and Germany (including individuals from Jewish origin) flooded the country and they brought with them their musical influences, fusing them together into this new, exciting genre.
Beginning in the 20th Century, the tango became increasingly more popular throughout the world. Jews embraced the genre as well, composing beautiful renditions in Yiddish, Russian, Ladino and Hebrew. Join us for a musical travelogue of this enchanting dance of life.
