The prologue introduces the reader to the topic of tango nuevo and to the tensions between preservation and evolution in contemporary Argentine tango. Beginning with tango's global reach and transformation into national/local symbol, lucrative commodity and famous export, the prologue also highlights the place of Argentina and Buenos Aires in the global imaginary, contemporary approaches to ethnography, the research methods employed in studying nuevo, and the benefits of anthropological analysis to the study of culture. The prologue concludes with a chapter overview and notes on the text.
