Abrazos - Tango in Buenos Aires - DVD
One of the most beloved popular music scenes in the world, tango’s traditional music and dance has become a local and international obsession.
This faithful and exhilarating representation of the 5th Buenos Aires Tango Festival brings to the screen all the squeezes of the bandoneon, quick kicks, and guttural songs of heartbreak, deceit and national pride.
Today’s biggest names in tango perform on stage and off for a multitude of spectators. The electricity is palpable at the massive open-air performances as the excitable throngs are happily coerced into belting along to their most cherished tangos. Refusing to be a mere elegy, both the festival and the film do their part to prove tango is not a legacy, but a living and constantly evolving art form.
