La Boca, is an area in Buenos Aires. Argentina has a lot of historic significance. It is full of colourful European architecture, and it became home to many working class immigrants who came to Argentina in the late 19th century and it is also known as Tango’s hometown.
Tango was always considered a dance of the working people and did not become popular until Europeans took the music and dance to Paris where it was embraced. Only after Paris, did Tango take central stage in Argentina and in the early 20th century, it was entered as part of the Ballroom competition.
Today, tourists come to this town, and may find the architecture fascinating or tango origins interesting. But above all, they would find it extremely challenging to not notice the “touristy” nature of the place that seems to overwhelm its historical and architectural significance. Did anyone else feel like this?
