Tangro Negro: The African Roots of Tango

Tango Negro, The African Roots of Tango by Angolan filmmaker Dom Pedro explores the expression of Tango's Africanness and the contribution of African cultures in the creation of the tango. Tango was a reflection of the social life of the slaves that were taken from mostly central Africa in the former Kongo Kingdom to South America including Argentina and Uruguay.
