Dancing Out Loud

Posted on 12/15/2015 10:00:00 AM in What We’re Watching

A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
The Argentine tango is all about passion, drama, and attitude—nowadays, anyway. In Buenos Aires, the tango used to be workingman’s music. Adding lyrics to music might not sound so revolutionary, but that’s how crooner Carlos Gardel created such a huge stir, the rest of the world took notice of tango music and dance and turned them into an international pastime. In this episode of Treasure Hunters, we sleuth through vibrant neighborhoods—La Boca, Palermo, Flores—and little-known record shops of Buenos Aires to find a recording of Gardel’s song that changed tango forever: Mi Noche Triste (“My Sad Night”).

This film was first published on BBC.com Travel.
