#3698: Unusual Waltzes and Tangos

Email a Friend
Most think of tango as a sultry dance form, usually practiced in films between two impossibly good-looking human beings with a rose clenched in the teeth.
From

From Korean komungo music to Philip Glass to Australian band Topology, hear an hour of unusual waltzes - that genteel dance in threes- and the tango, once risqué. Hear music from Australian composer Robert Davidson and a setting of vocal clips from Whitlam’s Dismissal. Also, listen to music by Philip Glass from an album of waltzes, “The Waltz Project” along with music by Michael Nyman. Then, there’s music from Yugoslav composer and musician Goran Bregovic from the Emir Kusturica film, “Underground,” along with music from the Parisian band, The Gotan Project. Plus a tango for Korean komungo (geomungo), and more.
