Tangos Despreciados

Episode 3 of Tangos Despreciados. This time: European tangos, tangos that the cultural elite in Argentina looked down on.

The tango originated from a melting pot of musical influences from South America, Europe and Africa. Even after the tango had taken its form, influences continued to flow back and forth between the Rio de la Plata basin and continental Europe. In different periods Argentinean and Uruguayan orchestras played in Europe, often in Paris. They also regularly took ‘European’ tunes back to Buenos Aires. But these were – and are – not always welcomed…

Three gauchos in Paris: Rafael, Juan and Francisco Canaro (1925). In those days in Paris, Argentine musicians had to perform in folkloric attire, because otherwise the French musicians feared too much competition.
