The word “Tango” originates from an African percussion instrument: the “tambor” (drum). Of mestizo origin, Tango was born around 1880 in the capitals Buenos Aires and Montevideo and was then exported to Europe at the beginning of the century. Tango immediately achieves a huge success, but it also makes the scandal cry because it is considered a sinful dance. In the beginning it was considered a normal practice to dance man with man (and also woman with woman): it was done to experiment with movements, commands and directions.
