            In the heat of two Argentinean bodies intertwined, lives the sensual music of the Tango. Art is an extension of life; and the Tango was an extension of the low Argentinean social class "orilla (History of the tango)."" Contrary to other highbrow musical genres, the Tango was created by the poor people in the most unlikeliest places where true art could be derived; those with nothing to live for except a sense of culture and a small taste for life's sexuality. But this original Tango termed the "milonga (To Tango)- was quickly transformed and argued disfigured, by the upper-social class critique. .
             Made by a blend of immigrants' cultures, exotic beats, and eclectic lifestyles all combined in the seaports of Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1880. Localizations in which this new mode of self-expression was found include, "bars, gambling houses, brothels were lonely men spent time socializing, drinking, gambling and looking for some romance in the company of women (To Tango)."" This new dance was utilized to depict the relationship of prostitutes and their caretakers in brothels in the underbelly of society; "In fact the titles of the first Tangos referred to characters in the world of prostitution (History of the tango)."" Several aspects of the sensational dance such as vestment and physical contact radically rebelled against strict social etiquette limited physical contact in social situations. It is arguable that the present stereotype associated to the Tango of being completely erotic and romantic, was established during this time. .
             The sound of tango was produced by "rhythm played on piano and double bass: melodies played on the bandoneon and the violin, with strong counter melodies and variations (History of the tango)."" The tango is a blend of borrowed musical forms from many nations because it was produced by many cultures, "The relentless rhythms that the African slaves "the candombe- beat on their drums (known as tan-go); the popular music of the pampas (flatlands) known as the milonga, which combined Indian rhythms with the music of early Spanish colonists; and other influences, including Latin (History of the tango).
