As much as Tango originated in South America, these days it has become a truly global phenomenon.
Away from the flashy images of well-built, well-trained supermodels in tight suits & robes, there are all over the planet ordinary people moving their legs and hips to the seducing rhythms. Most often in their ordinary attires, meeting up in eachother’s houses.
I visited the only regular meeting Tango community between Cairo and Johannesburg, practising the Milonga dance, which happens to be in Nairobi:
The Nairobi based Patamango Association for Argentine Tango – bringing the Tango to Nairobi!
