487_20061221_05Tango Buenos Aires has become one of Argentina’s great cultural exports, known throughout the Americas, Europe, and the Far East as the most authentic and uncompromising representative of the Tango. Tango Buenos Aires was created for the "Jazmines" festival at the famous Buenos Aires cabaret "Michelangelo" by renowned composer and tango director Osvaldo Requena. The company met with tremendous success and was immediately added to the season of the General San Martin Municipal Theatre.

In 1986, the company traveled to the United States in order to represent Argentina at the Latin-American Festival, which took place at the Delacorte Theatre in New York City's Central Park during the month of August. This event was followed by an extensive tour throughout the United States, along with trips to Mexico, Puerto Rico, and El Salvador, followed by a return to the United States via Miami and San Francisco.

Since then they have traveled to dozens of countries such as Ecuador, Germany, Spain, Malaysia, Thailand, Chile, Finland, Japan, China, and dozens of major U.S. cities. With each show, they bring their Argentinian culture and dance and display it for their audiences to learn and enjoy.
