Inside the Show Tango Argentino – Description

During the dark years of the military dictatorship, Tango had fallen into oblivion worldwide, most especially in Argentina. The “Tango Argentino” show was the show that led to the worldwide revival of interest in Tango. It debuted in Paris, then conquered Broadway and, later, the whole world.

Juan Carlos Copes, Miguel Ángel Zotto, and Milena Plebs, Gloria and Rodolfo Dinzel, Gloria and Eduardo, Virulazo, and Elvira are some of the artists who participated in this legendary show and are described in great detail in this book, now known as the definitive work on Tango Argentino.

Every serious tanguero should know the history of the revival of Tango, and this book is for them.

Tango Argentino: What a book!

What a book! It enchants immediately, like the show, taking us to the beginnings of Tango, accompanying us in its history, gradually creating the irresistible desire of Tango in the reader.

In the book, we come face to face with the myths of the dancers, musicians, and singers. It tells us some gossip about the fights and jealousies behind the scenes and tells us also about creating the costumes, now iconic in the worlds of theater and fashion.

We also read that Lady Diana and the Japanese Emperor Hirohito were so enchanted by the Tango that they wanted to learn it.

It is finally confirmed: only by knowing the beginning of this new era can we better understand its current global success.

Tango is a universal language!

Nostalgia, Betrayal, Love – Rosa Ucci

Rosa Ucci
Nostalgia, Betrayal, Love Journey into the tango

Today’s Tango phenomenon is a reality for the whole world, involving people from all walks of life in three continents: Asia, America, and Africa.
The author has asked herself why this ‘retrieval’ of the Tango, particularly the dance. Why are people from all over the world going to the ‘milongas’? A question that leads her into an interior journey, an experience of awareness, in search of the essence, the “spirit of Tango that expresses the impulses of a universal soul,” talking about sudden afflictions, an underlying melancholy, of loss and nostalgia but with also a personal capacity for regeneration.
Music has the power to overcome pain to accept the loss, the force to appreciate life to push forward in search of adapting to new values, new dimensions.
Using contemporary psychology, the author interprets the rites and myths of the Tango, unveiling the emotional process which, developing into an intimate and profound condition, takes us back to the sacredness of an encounter, the physical contact, an embrace, a disease which is today foreign to modern man, crushed by individualism.
With the frantic routine of everyday life, what is there to be discovered through Tango? Something genuine, interior, profound, a moment of peace, an answer, even if only fleeting and mainly unwitting, to the feeling of emptiness.
The Tango brings to the surface that profound communication has today been buried by smothering wounds. In this world of crises, the choosing of Tango by an uprooted humanity without points of reference represents the revenge of the spirit, the struggle of the soul reclaiming what has been torn away.
With its whole ‘being,’ the Tango is like an accusation of contemporary history, highlighting the fact that Man should not remain entrapped in a life without meaning, suffocated by the shapeless mass of nothingness.
