Tango en la noche by Sigfredo Pastor, ARGENTINA

Hola, I proudly present my very first card from ARGENTINA!!! I received this artistic postcard yesterday. It shows a lovely drawing called “Tango en la noche” or “Tango at night” by Sigfredo Pastor.

Sigfredo Pastor
is an Argentinean painter who dedicated himself to draw a pictorial theme of deep tango root. There are plenty of his works that show people dancing tango complete with its unique elements.

Tango is a traditional dance forms that originated from Buenos Aires, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. In September 2009, UNESCO has granted both countries’ wishes to list Tango as part of the world's Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. There are many variety styles of tango that developed in different regions. However, Tango is essentially walking with a partner and the music. That’s why people always say “It takes two to tango” :)

Thanks Melina for this gorgeous card!
