The UNESCO declared the Tango an

Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity


Tango is a genre that originally involved dance, music, poetry and singing. Tango expresses a way of conceiving the world and life and it nourishes the cultural imagery of the inhabitants of the capital cities of the Rio de la Plata. This genre includes also the milonga, the milonga candombeada and the so-called vals criollo.


Tango was born among the lower urban classes in both cities as an expression originated in the fusion of elements from Argentine and Uruguayan`s African culture, authentic criollos [natives of this region] and European immigrants. As the artistic and cultural result of hybridization`s processes, Tango is considered nowadays one of the fundamental signs of the Rio de la Plata’s identity.
