Milonga Buenos Aires

Milonga Parakultural

Tango is far from just some bit of cultural heritage that Argentines drag out for tourists or when they’re feeling nostalgic. It is a huge part of many Porteños (citizens of Buenos Aires) lives and there are innumerable Milongas – essentially anywhere people meet to dance Tango – in the city. To see a professionally choreographed Tango show is lovely and a box well worth ticking though Tango is, like most dances, not naturally choreographed and to see it at its purest, improvised form you must visit a Milonga. There are all types of Milongas; most are a mix of young, old experienced and novice dancers. However, all Milongas share one characteristic: whether you are at La Viruta or Parakutural – famous Milongas frequented by Tango’s famous names – or one of the hundreds of tiny Milongas held outside or at community centers everyone attending is very serious about learning or improving their Tango.
