Neotango is a distinct genre of Tango which goes beyond it both in music and in dance. The music is a container of tracks from all over the World, instrumental or vocal, clearly distinct from the tango that preceded it because it includes only modern music, everything which was recorded in the last 30/40 years and which can be danced using the tango biomechanics. As a dance form it is currently evolving. It is the 'living' globalized tango dance form of the 21st Century.

The music[edit]

It is not Tango Nuevo. "Tango Nuevo" came out in the tango history several times, because in Castellano nuevo simply means new, so it was used both for new music, for example when Astor Piazzolla broke some rules of the musical tango-pattern, and afterwards around year 2000 when some Argentinian or Argentinian-inspired electronic music groups like Tanghetto, Bajofondo, Electrocutango, Gotan Project, Tango Jointz, Idealtango, Trio Garufa, TanGothic, Tango Conspiracy, Dure-mère, Club des Belugas, Tango Crash, Etango, Kantango, TangoFactory, Abstractango, Medialuna Tango Project, Café Deseado, Tango Fusion, Adrian Subotovsky Subotango, IN-Grid, Narcotango and Otros Aires broke once again with the past, bringing new electronic sounds and danceable rhythms.

The dance[edit]

Neotango is not Tango Nuevo. The term "Tango Nuevo" was used in dance every time some Argentinian tango teacher came out telling he was teaching a new dancing style, it was Tango Nuevo for example the tango of the old "Petroleo" in the 1940 era, and it was Tango Nuevo in the 1990/2000 when some Argentinian teachers promoted out-of-axis dynamics in their seminars around the world (and which they lately rejected)

Neotango uses just standard tango biomechanics and same flow of the dancefloor, it's open to fusion dances and technologies, and it does not follow any of the strict rules of a traditional milonga.
