This is the third of a total of fourteen symphonic dances. It was inspired by the widely popular Tango, which originated during the 1880s in the impoverished port area of the La Boca district in Buenos Aires, where the composer grew up. Both a partner as well as a social dance, the Tango is the combination of three historically preceding dances, the Candombe, the Milonga, and the Spanish-Cuban Habanera. The Tango was frequently practised in the bars and brothels of the local port of the Argentine capital and spread from there to the rest of the world, making it one of the most popular dances in history.
