(Hello Everyone!)

In Buenos Aires, the President and First Family will meet with the newArgentine President, Mauricio Macri, to discuss President Macri’s reform agenda and recognize his contributions to the defense of human rights in the region.  The President will deepen efforts to increase cooperation between our governments in a range of areas, including trade and investment, renewable energy and climate change, and citizen security.  It has been nearly two decades since the last bilaterally focused visit by a U.S. President to Argentina, Latin America’s third largest country.

Tango is a dance that has influences from European and African culture.  Dances from the candombe ceremonies of former slave peoples helped shape the modern day Tango. The dance originated in lower-class districts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo.
The music derived from the fusion of various forms of music from Europe.  The word “tango” seems to have first been used in connection with the dance in the 1880s, possibly related to the Latin word “tangere” but more likely related to the African slave word “tango” (drum or dance place).
