dc.description.abstract The evolution of the Argentine tango is examined, demonstrating the importance of fragmentation and international influences on its creation and endurance as a national symbol for Argentine identity. It looks at the evolution of the tango chronologically, highlighting important moments in its development both domestically and abroad that have furthered its development and importance culturally and in regards to its relationship with national identity. Specifically, five major periods in tango will be explored: its beginnings; its early travels to Europe; its repatriation to Argentina and the subsequent Golden Years; then its renaissance and endurance abroad, which finally led it back to Argentina for a local renaissance. The current renaissance in Argentina demonstrates the lasting importance of the tango to national identity, as well as the durability of various hybrid forms of the tango. It also shows us that tango has particular transnational characteristics, which enables the tango to leave its borders, only to come back with renewed vitality and popularity. The national symbol therefore, benefits from its international travels and exposure, as it furthers its development and helps the tango endure. en_US
