Argentina, the birth place of Tango, boasts a rich historical tapestry intertwined with indigenous cultures, Spanish colonialism, and waves of European immigration. When the Spanish explorers arrived, they were captivated by the indigenous people adorned in silver jewelry, leading them to name the land Argentina, meaning “Silver Land.” The capital city, Buenos Aires, initially christened “Real de Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre” after a goddess from history who saved tailors, became a haven for European immigrants from the 16th century until the end of World War II in 1945.


Founded in 1536, Buenos Aires officially became the capital of the Argentine Republic in 1880. This vibrant city became synonymous with Tango, a passionate dance and music genre that emerged over 150 years ago. Tango found its roots in the diverse cultural melting pot of Buenos Aires, flourishing in luxurious theaters, bustling cafes, and even in the streets. Tango’s evolution mirrored the city’s own transformation, reflecting the influences of European, indigenous, and African cultures.
