The history of Tango isn’t any secret and the basic outline of this DVD’s content is close to what you’ll read of Tango, and it’s music, on Wikipedia. Included here is the music, presented as different musicians and orchestras played it at different times, and using different instruments and so forth.

I have some friends who’ve traveled to Argentina to dance and they swear it’s not uncommon to corner “Tango Tourists” for an hour or two of a “History Show” - much as it’s presented on this DVD. Could be…I do know it was a bit long and while I expected there to be a Spanish sound track and/or an English sound track, I was surprised, then annoyed, that the main speakers speak Spanish – and then there is a pause while someone else speaks the same lines in English. Not fun. Not fast. And, yeah, “touristy.”

There is a nod, here and there on the DVD, about the importance of “the dancers” knowing and understanding the music they are dancing Tango to… What’s not talked about is that different Tango steps and dance styles went right along with the music at the time it was played then. That would have been a good thing to mention to “the dancers” so that they might pick up sooner on why it’s “OK” to dance/step to the music they hear – even though it’s not what they were listening to in class, or, usually practice to...
