you have to grant it to them : Argentinians have style when they do the tango

Peculiarly serious and playful at the same time

mind you, it's pretty hard to avoid being bombarded by tango anywhere in the tourist hotspots

Bit dangerous the way she keeps sticking her leg in between his... I may be missing the cultural relevance

i missed videoing the second part where his wife comes on the scene, chases off the young girl and shows him how to dance a real tango

good storyline though

but yeah, the kicks are all part of how tango is supposed to performed

Flamenco has the same trademark intensity:



Can't imagine it taking off in the UK, though, we're altogether too docile :lol:

not sure about docile - imagine what a football hooligan would say about flamenco, probably would think it was all rather sissified

Maybe, but doesn't that just reflect an insecurity on the part of a male who recognises more and more of previously 'male' territory being shared with females, and searching around for some way to stamp his masculine authority?

anyhow, the music doesn't restrict itself to just tango
in the San Telmo area there's various music groups plying for the public's favours

there's quite some variety in the type of music that is on display

one more video in a totally different setting - the tango show of the first video
this bola juggler was an inbetween act, but no less amazing because of it
