Tanguero

My journey in US began with meeting my young nephew and niece and would end after I met them again. Meet my Tanguero. Notice, he wears Buenos Aires T shirt. San Telmo is where I stayed in Buenos Aires. Notice the Tango pose on his T shirt.


Tanguero strikes a pose with his massi.


And then with his mom.


FYI: Tanguero - person deeply passionate about any part of tango, such as its history, music or lyrics.
Most tangueros are scholars. One can be a tanguero without being a milonguero and a milonguero without being a tanguero.
A tanguero or tanguera can also refer to a professional tango dancer. These dancers have scholastic or socially accepted credentials in the art of tango.
