really liked it

Deeply researched history of the African roots of tango. I only made it through the first few chapters before returning it to the library. When I have the time I'll take it out again and continue.

I really appreciated the quick bios of the major Tango poets/lyricists. Their lives and the cultural contexts helped me understand the development of Tango as an art form.
