argentinaBuenos Aires is synonymous with tango, but cumbia is what more Argentines dance to. Also known as tropicál, it’s the sound of small towns and working-class neighborhoods, and it serves to connect Euro-intoxicated Buenos Aires to the rest of Latin America. Museyon Guide Eve Hyman takes you on a tour that extends beyond the city’s limits — head to the outskirts of town to dance at the bailanta, or dance hall, and discover the sounds of cumbia without even leaving the U.S.
