On this website, the readers will be able to find a lot of information and posts about San Telmo, the neighborhood in Buenos Aires where tango music originated towards the end of the second half of the 19th century. Tango music is a genre characteristic to the region known as Rio de la Plata, or River Plate, which is one of the widest rivers in the world and separates the countries of Argentina and Uruguay, located in the southern hemisphere of the world, in the Americas.
It might be worth mentioning that Argentina is the southernmost country in the world, which makes it the nearest to the Antarctic, known as the “end of the world”. As mentioned before, these two countries are divided by one of the widest rivers in the world and, as such, they share a common identity and many aspects of their cultures very similar.
This website is dedicated to the fascinating and passionate world of tango music, and perhaps the most traditional, most representative neighborhood of Buenos Aires; namely San Telmo, as well as its people and culture, where this fine art form (because tango is much more than just music; it also has its very own traditional dance, very popular all over the world. Henceforth the phrase “it takes two to tango”) has its roots. This website deals mainly with issues and aspects related to the history, culture and music in the “Porteño” (Porteño is the demonym for the city of Buenos Aires) district of San Telmo.
