Nuevo means new in Spanish. Nuevo Tango or Tango Nuevo, the dance, followed the creation of Tango Nuevo Music. Astor Piazzolla was at the forefront of this development when he incorporated elements of jazz and classical music into traditional Argentinian Tango music.
When dancers tried to dance to Piazzolla's compositions such as Vuelvo al sur, the mood of the music inspired dancers to incorporate slower and larger moves. Or when dancing Piazzolla's Libertango - faster moves. Soon the name Tango Nuevo was given to this expression of Tango dancing. Tango Nuevo uses fundamental Tango concepts and adapts them to modern Tango music.
