This short lecture series by Jake Spatz is a study of how tango lyrics developed in Argentina during the early Golden Age. Beginning with the birth of the tango canción in the late 1910s, we’ll cover the first phase of major songwriters, to see how tangos borrow from each other and together form a kind of street opera chronicling the passions and anxieties of an era.
In these two lectures, Jake will cover the major songwriters of the 1920s and 1930s.
Lecture I. “Champagne Tango: The 1920s”
* Pascual Contursi, Celedonio Flores, Francisco García Jiménez
Lecture II. “Social Upheaval: The 1930s”
* E. S. Discépolo, Alfredo Le Pera, Enrique Cadícamo
Episode 71 features Cucuza Castiello, one of the greatest living tango singers. Meredith Klein was joined by co-host Juan Villarreal for this episode. The episode is in Spanish. It will soon be transcribed and translated into English.
Cucuza will be the featured performer, along with his son Mateo on guitar, in the May 21 concert in the Tango en la Terraza series. Information & tickets at www.tangoenlaterraza.com.

On September 30, 2019, WRTI 90.1 FM Philadelphia aired a beautiful show on Argentine tango, featuring performances and interviews by pianist Emiliano Messiez, bandoneonist Leandro Ragusa, and dancers Gustavo Rember and Meredith Klein. The show offers an up-to-the-minute view of the state of tango music today, and the ways that tango dance and tango music are influencing each other.
