Setting the Record Straight – The Gaucho Priest, The Pope and the Tango – Part Two – 11/11/18

The Tango is a dance born from a Catholic sensibility, a balancing of desire against order. It was created in the La Plata region of South America. The Tango was born out of the cultural mix of the Gaucho’s European origins, the Catholic theology of the body, the artistic ferment in the societies of Buenas Aires and Montevideo, and Christendom’s creation of the romantic partnered dance.  All this arose upon the ruins of the New World’s most advanced and literate mission culture, that of the brilliant Guarani tribes that was developed under the nurturing of Jesuits before being destroyed by invasions of slavers.
