MusicArgentina: Astor Piazzolla

Much more than music or dance, the roots of the tango are the roots of Buenos Aires. A folkloric tradition revered as the national anthem of Argentina, tango music can be as hot as the immigrants' watherfront brothels where it began or as cool as the high society cafes of the world where it has spread. To Astor Piazzola, one of the great bandoneon master, today's tango must reflect more than his country's history. By re-vitalizing and modernizing it with classical and jazz elements, Piazzolla has been ostracized in his native Argentina while achieving world-wide, musical fame.
