Tango is unusual from any other regional dance, in that it was created from many global influences. With it's roots in Africa (for instance, the word tango is African) via the ex-slaves who mixed with the disenfranchised nomadic Gauchos (Argentine mestizos, who had their own music and dance) after the fencing of the pampas. The many musical & dance traditions of the European immigrants who came to work the shipping ports, which brought even more influences from all over the world.
