“Tango Evening” at Megalo Kafeneio

Tripoli, Greece

An amazing spectacle at Megalo Kafeneio, in the city of Tripoli, Greece have offered on Friday, February 10th, 2023, two famous tango dancers.

Natalia Castaño and Julián Cataño are a tango dancing couple from Colombia. Besides being dancers , they are teachers and choreographers, finalists in the World Cup in the Tango Pista category, and most importantly, Colombian champions in 2022.

Tango is a partner dance and social dance that originated in the 1880s along the Río de la Plata, the natural border between Argentina and Uruguay. The tango was born in the impoverished port areas of these countries as the result of a combination of Rioplatense Candombe celebrations, Spanish-Cuban Habanera, and Argentine Milonga.The tango was frequently practiced in the brothels and bars of ports, where business owners employed bands to entertain their patrons. The tango then spread to the rest of the world. Many variations of this dance currently exist around the world.

On August 31, 2009, UNESCO approved a joint proposal by Argentina and Uruguay to include the tango in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.
