Piazzolla's tango innovations were at first derided by tango purists who hated the way Piazzolla incorporated non-tango musical elements in his compositions.
This is a battle that the jazz police and jazz fusion listeners are still waging in the U. S, however, Piazzolla eventually won out. Tango music was sometimes played but at a rather fast tempo. Instructors of the period would sometimes refer to this as a "North American tango", versus the so-called "Argentine Tango".
The Tango was controversial because of its perceived sexual overtones and, by the end of , the dance teachers who had introduced the dance to Paris were banished from the city. Taquito Militar by Mariano Mores played a monumental part in the rise of the tango and a major effect on Argentinian culture as a whole.
This song was premiered in during a governmental speech of President Juan D. Tango declined again in the s, as a result of economic depression and the banning of public gatherings by the military dictatorships ; male-only tango practice—the custom at the time—was considered "public gathering".
That, indirectly, boosted the popularity of rock and roll because, unlike tango, it did not require such gatherings. There are several theories regarding the origin of the word tango , none of which has been proven. According to an alternative theory, tango is derived from the Spanish word for " drum ", tambor. It is also sometimes theorized that the word is derived from the Portuguese word tanger , which means "to play a musical instrument".
The tango consists of a variety of styles that developed in different regions and eras of Argentina as well as in other locations around the world. The dance developed in response to many cultural elements, such as the crowding of the venue and even the fashions in clothing. The styles are mostly danced in either open embrace, where lead and follow have space between their bodies, or close embrace , where the lead and follow connect either chest-to-chest Argentine tango or in the upper thigh, hip area American and International tango.
The milonguero style is characterized by a very close embrace, small steps, and syncopated rhythmic footwork. It is based on the petitero or caquero style of the crowded downtown clubs of the s. In this case the embrace may be allowed to open briefly, to permit execution of the complex footwork.
The complex figures of this style became the basis for a theatrical performance style of tango seen in the touring stage shows. For stage purposes, the embrace is often open, and the complex footwork is augmented with gymnastic lifts, kicks, and drops.
A newer style sometimes called tango nuevo or "new tango", has been popularized in recent years by a younger generation of dancers. The embrace is often quite open and very elastic, permitting the leader to lead a large variety of very complex figures. This style is often associated with those who enjoy dancing to jazz- and techno-tinged "alternative tango" music, in addition to traditional tango compositions. Tango canyengue is a rhythmic style of tango that originated in the early s and is still popular today.
It is one of the original roots styles of tango and contains all fundamental elements of traditional Tango from the River Plate region Uruguay and Argentina. In tango canyengue the dancers share one axis, dance in a closed embrace, and with the legs relaxed and slightly bent. Tango canyengue uses body dissociation for the leading, walking with firm ground contact, and a permanent combination of on- and off-beat rhythm. Its main characteristics are its musicality and playfulness. Its rhythm is described as "incisive, exciting, provocative".
