Tango Negro, The African Roots of Tango & Candombe
Tango Negro

Tango Negro explores the expression of African-ness inherent in the dance of the "tango" and the contribution of African cultures to the dance's creation. Angolan director, Dom Pedro, details the dance's early cultural significance as a depiction of the social life of captured African slaves and provides an expansive compilation of musical performances and interviews from tango enthusiasts and historians alike.  Tango Negro provides a novel insight into the depth of tango's sub-Saharan African musical influence, a presence that has crossed oceans and endured the tides of forced bondage.

Directed by Dom Pedro, 2013, France, Documentary, 93 min, French, Spanish, English subt.

Shown with CANDOMBE

Musician Fernado Nunez sees himself as the heir to "candombe," a dance and musical expression initiated by his slave ancestors.
