Tango Argentina

Tango often appears in the elite class in society which the ladies wear glittering evening gowns and gentlemen wear the tuxedoes and dance under tango music, but tango is originated from a lower class in society. In twentieth century, many immigrants came to Argentina from Europe, Africa, and flocked to Buenos Aires suburb, Argentina brothel. From there, a mixture of cultures creates a new kind of music and dance - it was the Tango. Although researchers’ musical history has pretty much controversy about the authenticity of its origin, it is acknowledged that tango was combined from several different countries. For instance, tone was knocked on drums by African slave; milonga was music of South America moors combined between Indian and Spanish, and also the other influences which include Latin. In Latin, tango is “tangere” which means two people are adjacent to each other. Therefore, people believe tango was from Latin.
The massive migration of Europeans come to the Argentina affect to both tango music and dance. During 1980, the population of immigrants came to Buenos Aires was increased from 850,000 to 1.7 million (Gannon, 2013, 5th ed., pp. 568). Unskilled worker, women and children had to work in unhealthy environment. Lives of immigrants at that time were a difficult and completely different from elite and middle classes, but at that time they have grown up a dance presented a shadow of their lower class. Most of immigrants were poor men and their lives were miserable. They had to work hard to have enough money to bring their families to Argentina or went back to Europe. Therefore, they used music and dance to forget their lives. Tango is about the unfortunate fate of being engulfed in pain and is the hurts music. During that time, tango usually dance with bandoneon which is music instrument. Therefore, Argentina has been a biggest bandoneon…...

Biography of Tango

...- otherwise she cannot follow. Likewise, the man has to be very clear and decisive with what he is doing or is intending to do - otherwise the lady has no chance to follow. He also must listen and respond to the way the lady moves - and every lady moves and feels differently. Thus, dancing Tango is really more like a conversation that requires the full attention of both dancers. * Tango music does not follow strict rules like e.g. Viennese waltz or Cha Cha music which have a clear repetetive pattern. Especially the more contemporary Tango music tends to have no constant rhythmic pattern at all (e.g. Piazolla). Thus, the music is usually very colourful full of unexpected variations and surprises. * Rhythm is created using "melodic" instruments rather than percussion instruments - a bit like in most classical music. Typical Tango instruments are the bass, cello, violin, piano, flute and of course the soul of traditional Tango music the Bandoneon an accordion like instrument but with more keys and much harder to play. * Because of the nature of the music, there is no basic step for the dancers. Beginners often learn sequences of moves for didactic purposes. However, 99% of all Tango moves may be separated into six categories: cuts (saccadas), hooks (ganchos), foot sweeps (barridas), circles (giros), ochos and walks. Many movements are difficult to translate in English or other languages so that they are better known in their original Spanish name which I put in......

...LATIN -AMERICAN MUSIC LATIN -AMERICAN MUSIC LATIN AMERICAN MUSICAL STYLES LATIN AMERICAN MUSICAL STYLES Tango Tango During the "belle epoque" (1890s), the working class of the "Boca" of Buenos Aires (Argentina) invented a new rhythm, the tango. Tan-go was the name given to the drums of the African slaves, and the music was influenced by both the Cuban habanera and the local milonga. The choreography originally devised in the brothels to mimick the obscene and violent relationship between the prostitute, her pimp and a male rival eventually turned into a dance and a style of music of a pessimistic mood, permeated by a fatalistic sense of an unavoidable destiny, a music of sorrow enhanced by the melancholy sound of the bandoneon. When lyrics were added, they drew from "lunfardo", the lingo of the underworld (the term originally meant "thief"). Tango was embraced enthusiastically in Europe and landed in the USA in the 1910s. The Viennese waltz and the Polka had been the first dances to employ the close contact between a male and a female. The tango pushed the envelope in an even more erotic direction. One of the earliest hits of tango was pianist Enrique Saborido's Yo Soy La Morocha (1906). By that time, tango had already established itself as a major genre among young Argentinians. Roberto Firpo is credited as having set the standard in 1913 for all future tango orchestras: the rhythm set by syncopated piano figures, the melodies carried by bandoneon and violin.......

...Tango Ever heard of the phrase “it takes two to tango”? Well, it is true! Tango is one of the most intimate and romantic dances in the world. Often called, “the dance of love”, tango involves a man leading and the woman following in close, coordinated steps. The music played, the way the dancers look at each, the movement of the legs and hips; the whole environment of the dance is passionate. You can find the origins of tango in Argentina. However, it only became popular when the dance hit Europe. Tango did a lot of evolving in Europe. More complex moves were starting to be added to this dance style, like the famous Spanish dip. This is also the time when tango began being done in theaters, and ballrooms for the higher class. It got to the U.S. by the 1910s, and by then, everyone seemed to be mystified by this complex, emotional dance. Tango uses both quick and slow steps, because of its changing rhythms; the dancers mostly step on the ½, ¼, and 1/8 of the beat. It can also be danced to fast or slow music. Although, I prefer faster pace music for this genre of dance, for example Objection by Shakira, it adds more feeling to the dance. This is an extremely partner oriented dance as well, both partners needs to be perfectly in sync for the tango to be well executed. The tango also involves some of the fanciest footwork I have ever seen, not to mention the swirls, sharp body turns, dips. All this makes tango a very hard dance to master. Being from Brazil, the Argentinean...

...have been made regarding key components of an exercise program designed for those with PD. Keus et al. recommend four key areas: i) cueing strategies to improve gait, ii) cognitive movement strategies to improve transfers, iii) exercises to improve balance, and iv) training of joint mobility and muscle power to improve physical capacity. Dance as a Form of Exercise: Dance is an activity that is performed with music. (i) The music may serve as an external cue to facilitate movement, thus addressing the first recommended component which is the use of external cues. (ii) Dance also involves the teaching of specific movement strategies, which is the second recommended component of a PD-specific exercise program. For example, in Argentine tango participants can be taught a very specific strategy for walking backward. They are taught to keep the trunk over the supporting foot while reaching backward with the other foot, keeping the toe of that rear foot in contact with the floor as it slides back and shifting weight backward over the rear foot only after it is firmly planted. (iii) Dance also addresses the third recommended component, balance exercises. Throughout dancing, particularly with a partner, one must control balance dynamically and respond to disturbances within the environment (e.g. being bumped by another couple). In fact, people who have danced regularly over their lives are known to have better balance and less gait problems than non-dancers. Balance training......

...follow performs the opposite movement. * TANGO HISTORY The dance form derives from the Cuban habanera, the Argentine milonga and candombe, and is said to contain elements from theAfrican community in Buenos Aires, influenced both by ancient African rhythms and the music from Europe. Even though the present forms developed in Argentina from the mid 19th century, there are earlier written records of Tango dances inCuba and Spain, while there is a flamenco Tangos dance that may share a common ancestor in a minuet-style European dance. All sources stress the influence of the African communities and their rhythms, while the instruments and techniques brought in by European immigrants played a major role in its final definition, relating it to the Salon music styles to which Tango would contribute back at a later stage, when it became fashionable in early 20th century Paris. In Argentina, the word Tango seems to have first been used in the 1890s. In 1902 the Teatro Opera started to include tango in theirballs. Initially tango was just one of the many available local dances, but it soon became popular throughout society, as theatres and street barrel organs spread it from the suburbs to the working-class slums, which were packed with hundreds of thousands of Europeanimmigrants. The development of the Tango had influences from the cultures of several peoples that came together in these melting potsof ethnicities. For this reason Tango is often referred to as the music of the......

...and used it to unify Brazil. Samba was found mostly when Carnival took place. It wasn’t until Vargas came along and made Carnival a national event and supported samba schools. Not only did he support the samba schools, he also offered public funds to help the school financially. Vargas was a cultural icon for this style of music. Tango- This style of music is from Argentina. The istruments used in this music are the violin, guitar, flute, piano, and the bandoneon. The bandoneon is the most important instrument used in tango because it is made up of two wooden keyboards that are separated by leather bellows. The bandoneon is classified as a free-reed aerophone. Tango reflects the situation of a man fighting over a woman. Tango was performed in bars in the port cities where fighting was current. To some tango was seen as ill-mannered but continued to be used in the bohemian night clubs. It soon spread throughout Argentina, South America and even France. Carlos Gardel was the most important singer and composer of tango music. He started his career singing in bars, festivals, and parties. He created hundreds of three minute tango songs in his career and still remains an icon today. 3. Capoeira comes from Brazil and is a form of both dance and martial arts.

...What process would you use for identifying project risks for a second Oresund Bridge project? What risks would you raise for each alternative? I will use the Delphi technique. The reason why I will choose this process is because the Delphi Technique is a method used to estimate the likelihood and outcome of future events. A group of experts exchange views, and each individually gives estimates and assumptions to a facilitator who reviews the data and issues a summary report. The group members discuss and review the summary report individually, and give updated forecasts to the facilitator, who again reviews the material and issues a second report. This process continues until all participants reach a consensus. * What process would you use for categorizing project risks for a second Oresund Bridge project? How would you actually categorize them? I will use the Risk Breakdown Structure, because it is “A source-oriented grouping of project risks that Organizes and defines the total risk exposure of the project. Each descending level represents an increasingly detailed definition of sources of risk to the project.” The RBS is therefore a hierarchical structure of potential risk sources. The value of the RBS can be an invaluable aid to understanding the risks faced by the project. * What process would you use for ranking project risks for a second Oresund Bridge project?

The Culture and Variety of Argentina

...and its people. The country is also very prominent within the realm of entertainment such as music and dance. The music scene in Buenos Aires is very much alive and there are many pubs and clubs, called "boliches", where local and international rock, jazz, reggae, punk, techno, dance, hip-hop, electronica or Caribbean bands perform. But the main attraction of the Buenos Aires entertainment culture is that of the Tango dance. Although there has been speculation that Cuba might have developed the dance, Buenos Aires is known internationally for being the city where tango music and dance was nurtured. “Initially, the tango was played in brothels with a violin, a flute and a guitar. The mythical instrument, the bandoneon, was not a part of the tango until a couple of decades later, around 1900 approximately, and little by little it started to replace the flute,” as stated by a locally printed account of the history of their precious dance. The same article goes on to describe the intricacies of the dance: “The dance is one of the most important expressions of the tango and the visual beauty illustrates the spirit of the music. A foot moves in every musical note, meaning that if a foot moves in one note, in the following note the other one should, too; similar to walking” (Easy, 2010). With such unique characteristics amongst the Argentinian people in society and entertainment, there has to be similar diversity amongst the culinary realm of Argentina’s culture. According to......
