Tango in Argentina

An update from Muzamil, MBA ’12 in Entrepreneurship, who traveled to Latin America with the Cox Global Leadership Program:

Song and I decided to go off the beaten path and eat some Korean Sushi and see a Tango show. The Korean sushi was incredible; for about $20 we ate an insane amount of food – sushi, chicken satay, miso soup, dumplings, tempura and more. This incredible meal was followed by my most memorable experience in my entire Latin America trip – seeing a tango show in the tango capital of the world.

I can’t say that I was expecting what I saw in the show. We went into a small basement in a cafe, tables for about 20 to 30 people. There was live music, a singer, and four tango pairs. The level of passion, tension, and intensity was immeasurable.

We sat in the front row, and we were the only non-natives in the place, getting to see such a special part of Argentina’s culture. Later, we actually saw the dancers and performers after the show – they walked out like normal people, hurrying to smoke a cigarette and catch a taxi home – but they weren’t normal to us!
