Milonga is a term for a place or an event where tango is danced. People who frequently go to milongas are sometimes called milongueros. The term "milonga" can also refer to a musical genre.
Due to the strict assembly ban imposed by the military government, milongas almost disappared from Buenos Aires in the 1960s and 1970s. Nevertheless, since the beginning of the 1990s, the tango culture in Buenos Aires has undergone dynamic development, and today one can choose from between fifteen and thirty different milongas every day.
* Confiteria Ideal: an old-fashioned milonga where dances are
held afternoons and evenings, almost every day of the week. Confiteria Ideal
was the setting for films like The Tango Lesson' and Evita.
Five years on from their stunning, passion-drenched debut, La Revancha Del Tango, Argentine guitarist Eduardo Makaroff and Parisian electronica producers Philippe Cohen Solal and Christoph H Müller are back and continuing the progression of the tango. Initial sessions for Lunático took place at Studio ION in Buenos Aires with a wide range of local musicians, including a full string section. The result is a warmer, less stark album - deeper, broader and richer. In places, the return to the Argentine roots is evident as it draws more heavily on tradition. Elsewhere, the tango genre's limits are tested by drum loops and rap, but it always seems as fitting as a rose between the teeth. If you're after dark, bloody romance with a twist, look no further.
