2008, March, 26. Igor: This is an old article. Right now I totally reversed my views. Gustavo Naveira and Chicho do not dance Tango Nuevo to the surprise. They dance Tango Orillero with some Tango Nuevo figures. What is reffered to Tango Nuevo these days is the style very different from Naveira's.

It is even more complex than that.

Antonio Todaro, way before Naveira. This is not a show tango, not a "performace". It is Tango Orillero similar to the way it was actually danced 100 years ago.
