We’ll likely encounter the same tango songs everywhere we dance.

Can we remember the song that was playing when we first stepped onto the dance floor at a práctica or milonga?
When something memorable happened – such as the moment we accomplished some major tango goal – can we remember the song we were dancing to? Or did tango music happen to be playing the moment we received some other big news during the day?
The next time a familiar tango song evokes meaningful memories, take a few moments to pause. Reflect on the emotions that are attached to them.It’s a tango cliché to say that these emotions can’t be explained, and only danced. But it’s true. These less tangible elements bring a deeper dynamism, and life, to our tango that can’t be expressed through technique alone.
