Tango can save your life, and it will break your heart.

The evolution of Tango was through emotions- unintentional and spontaneous. Men who feared they would never meet their wives, that they would die among the plantations, that they would be buried without ceremony... were those who were responsible for giving birth to the dance which would change the lives of poeple for centuries to come. They would dance with bare feet and a naked heart. Only the rising sun would dull the pain of memories. Uneducated, having limited resources, their only outlet was music and dance. Tango is a mixture of this sensous, heart breaking feeling. The feeling of inevitable sadness, uncertainity and somewhere deep inside, suppressed hope.
