Tango as flamenco style has a couplet, composed by 3 or 4 eight-syllable verses. It is considered as one of the most basic flamenco styles.
There are different variations: the tango of Badajoz, Cádiz, Jerez, Triana and Malaga. Theories indicate that the origin of this genre would be between Cadiz and Seville. From there it deployed to America, where later Río de la Plata tango was created. It is possible that "tango flamenco" comes from ancient songs of the 19th century. These changed gradually and reached its present form.
It is a 4/4 singing that can be performed in any of the tonalities. Its first performers were El Mellizo and Aurelio Selles (Cádiz). El Titi and Pastora Pavón "la Niña de los Peines" (Sevilla). The Mojama and Frijones (Jerez). La Pirula, La Repompa and El Pillayo in Malaga and Cadiz.
