4.0 out of 5 stars Can You Feel It??, 12 Sep 2010

(VINE VOICE)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Tango (Audio CD)
The tango first came about from slaves and the influences of European music genres in the late nineteenth century. Initially played and listened by the poor in the slums it rose above this as people found an interest in it in the States, and then across Europe. Nowadays of course you see it in ballroom contests, gymnasts use it for floor work, and it has been used by synchronised swimmers and others, as well as an exercise for many people.

Its mix of passion, drama and at times a laid back feel, rather like traditional jazz is something that you either feel or not. I know some people don't like it, it is either in your soul or not, so I wouldn't try to argue with people what is special about it.

This cd set has a disc of twenty tracks of the more classical tango music, a lot of which you probably already know. The second cd has fifteen tracks of more contemporary music and the third cd has fifteen tracks of electronic tango, which has helped to introduce younger generations to this unique style. A word of warning, because you may have only heard the music played in ballrooom competitions you may not realise that it is singing as well. This box set is a good introduction to this infectious song and music genre.
