Hope u r having a nice Monday and lots of coffee. And I'm introducing the next one of the dancing moves-Argentine Tango. Had so much fun doing that. Can never get enough of that music and watching ppl dance although I'm terrible at it :d

As always, I'll share some history with you as well, cuz u know I'm cool like that.

Argentine tango is a musical genre and accompanying social dance originating at the end of the 19th century in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. It typically has a 2/4 or 4/ 4 rhythmic time signature, and two or three parts repeating in patterns such as ABAB or ABCAC. Its lyrics are marked by nostalgia, sadness, and laments for lost love. The typical orchestra has several melodic instruments and is given a distinctive air by the small button accordion called the bandoneon. It has continued to grow in popularity and spread internationally, adding modern elements without replacing the older ones.
