Murga porteña

Tango’s heritage

In the murga, we can clearly see the black heritage of Argentina ; the negritude in all its splendor is conserved in the murga. Moreover, many important tango dancers are also important murga dancers, which gave them the possibility of liberal expression, leaving aside all prejudices and codes of popular dances in order to train their spirit and their body in the magic trance of this dance. The murga porteña, "the tango’s catharsis", is where tango’s controlled passion explodes in limitless expression until the highest jump of a "matanza" (last part of the murga sequence where the dancer, accompanied by a bass drum and symbal, creates energetic jumping figures). The murga is a part of tango which awakens.

Lessons for today’s tangueros

The murga gives us something essential - contact with the earth and grounded beat, a calm deep rhythm, one of the more difficult concepts for a tanguero to master. Also very useful are the relaxed body and uninhibited movement. Working with a free body is essential for any dancer. The murga offers us these elements that are not always evident in tango : rhythm and grounding, and lack of inhibition. The murga opens a new door to creativity.
