Ten To Tango

Mario MarzanTwenty-five years have passed since a successful Broadway show — Tango Argentino — revitalized the image of tango in the eyes of the world. Since then, its popularity has remained undiminished, with a particularly strong tango dance revival taking place in its birthplace, Buenos Aires.

Playlist fans will also be happy to hear that specially discounted tickets are available for the festival.
