Tango is a traditional music of Argentina that evolved from cross-cultural elements beginning in the nineteenth century. This traditional music has been recently modernized through Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla, considered as a creator of Nuevo Tango, fuses tango rhythm, jazz melodies and harmony, and classical counterpoint to advance the traditional tango and to develop Nuevo Tango. In this new genre, Piazzolla establishes more complicated structure, rhythms, and harmonies of tango music. This paper investigates how traditional tango has been transformed by Piazzolla especially with jazz elements.
