Tango Negro: The African Roots of Tango 18

Fri 4 May 2018, 7pm


Tango is synonymous with South America, particularly Argentina and Uruguay, and yet the history behind the genre has been obscured.

Angolan filmmaker Dom Pedro aims to put the record straight in this insightful documentary exploring the contribution of African cultures in the creation of the tango, combining musical performances and interviews from many tango aficionados and historians in Latin America and Europe, including the renowned Argentinean pianist Juan Carlos Caceres.

Tango Negro reveals the depth of the footprints of the African music on the tango, however invisible they might seem today.
