What music is played in tango events?
logo The whole spectrum of the music genres ( divided in Tangos, Valses, Milongas ) played in organized tango events is structured below; together with a comprehensive hierarchy per era in chronological order from top to bottom and left to right :

Classic
1895-1950s
Nuevologo The music created and named by Àstor Piazzólla after 1956. This genre ( the mature pieces mainly ) is played rarely in the milongas due to its lack of a comprehensive dancing beat on its structure. Tango Nuevo is usually used for performances due to its rich musical elements. Àstor Piazzólla merged beautifully classical, jazz, and tango music in an unparalleled way that made him one of the most revolutionary composers of his time. Some people falsely use the word Nuevo to describe the Electronic era/genre.

1956-1990s
Electroniclogo The music created and named by Gotan Project after 1999; it includes the Milongas and Tangos ( there is no significant effort to produce Valses ). It is played numerous times in many milongas around the world and has fanatic followers ( dancers and non-dancers too ). It merges successfully electronic beats and samples with elements from the Classic genre. This genre is responsible for bringing hundreds of thousands of young people closer to tango culture all over the world, and for making millions of sales, due to its vast contemporary and popular sound.

logo The music genres played in organized tango events depend from the organizer, DJ, and the “kind” of the dancers. They can dramatically alter the success of an event, through controling the floor's atmosphere and energy. Different music genres attract different people in these beautiful events. Tango dancers that prefer to dance mainly with close embraces, tend to go to milongas that play more or exclusively music from the Classic era. At the same time tango dancers that dance mainly with open embraces or both, will likely go to milongas that also play music from the Electronic era.

logo Experience indicates that the most popular milongas around the world embrace a fine balance from all three above eras and the three types of music ( Tangos, Valses, Milongas ), and mostly from Classic and Electronic.
