The music -- born of a mix between African and European influences in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Montevideo, Uruguay -- has been leaving dance floors sticky, hot, and wet since the 1890s. The dance involves a close embrace between partners, complex footwork, and semi-gymnastic maneuvers. It's like Kama Sutra with your clothes on.
If tango was a woman, she would look like a morena Scarlet Johanssen walking through Paris in lingerie at midnight, smoking a cigarette.
Tango is so fine that when she hits the stage, jaws drop, blood goes to the head, and leaves faces flushed with excitement.
In 2005, Jimena Fama recognized the music's allure, went on a musicological quest through Argentina, and then started Tango Conspiracy, an electro-dub-tango band employing live musicianship and electronic elements. The result has been wowing audiences from posh Miami to rich New York, and every television in between thanks to constant shows and a crucial placement on Dancing With The Stars.
Now, for Winter Music Conference, Jimena and crew bring the heat back to Miami, and strut through SW Eighth Street like stilettos on some long legs.
