Hints & Myths about Argentine Tango


Noone really knows who invented the milonga style of tango as we know it today but try to find a milonga recorded before 1932's Milonga Sentimental written by Sebastian Piana and Homero Manzi.

Some earlier tunes are called tango-milonga to show they were for dancing and distinguish them from tango- cancion - for singing.

There was also a much older form of milonga which is undoubtedly a parent of Tango.

  Here are some notes from recent milonga lessons:
