be a better dancer: study tango music
tango music styles
Most Tangos orchestrated before 1930 lack musical phrases and may sound boring to most dancers. On the opposite spectrum, Tangos orchetrated after 1950 tend to be loud, flashy, heavily orchestrational, sugary and overornated suitable for Tango shows, but not at all for social Tango dancing, with noteworthy exceptions such as the music from Alfredo Attadía, Ángel Condercuri and very few others.
