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!

  1. This is a great book to understand how not only the show was born, but also this unbelievable boom of tango in the world since the 80s. In addition, few books show the intimacy and let you know more about the great dancers. Excellent book.

  2. Without Gazenbeek’s careful research we cannot fully understand the rediscovery of the Argentine Tango and why we dance today in milonga, why we dress a certain way and why Tango is now part of society. An indispensable book for the modern Tanguero.
