Some Sleep, Others Tango: FI2W’s Diego Graglia on WNYC, New York Public Radio

While most of the city sleeps, a growing number of New Yorkers get together late at night to dance tango.

The tango parties are known as milongas, the Argentinean slang name for social tango dances born in Buenos Aires in the late 1800s. Two decades ago, only a couple of milongas existed in Queens. But today New York hosts up to five milongas any night of the week.

Feet in Two Worlds reporter Diego Graglia’s story on the city’s growing tango scene aired on WNYC, New York Public Radio on May 04, 2007. Click here or press play below to listen.
