TANGO is so much more than a musical genre. It's history, passion and feeling. It's integration of culture, distance and generations in one expression, an Argentine sound, that people around the world associate with us and our country. Tango has got its history, secrets, artists. Past, present and future of a cultural expression declared by UNESCO as Non-Material Cultural Heritage of Mankind. Every week we introduce a special program about the most important people in Argentine tango. It's a production by Julieta Galván, presented by Mirian Turkula and Fernando Farias.
