Tango et tourisme : dynamiques de valorisation et capitalisation à Buenos Aires

Abstract : The tango originated in the Rio de la Plata Basin between Buenos Aires and Montevideo in the late nineteenth century and is made of a plurality of cultural practices among which musical performances and dancing that have spread very early on across Europe during the Belle Epoque. Today tango is practiced around the world and has become one of the main tourist attractions in Buenos Aires. The inscription of tango as Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2009 marks a will to legitimize the origins of tango and support a growing tourism industry since the 2000s. The different actors from the economic and the tourism fields as well as the cultural heritage one seek to re-anchor tango in Buenos Aires while tango keeps expanding and is globally practiced by musicians and dancers. Is Buenos Aires, as the public actors claim, the world’s capital of tango?
