In the late 1800’s yellow fever forced the residents to abondon their dwellings leaving this area to the scoundrals and immagrants or the era.

And it was during this time that Tango was born in the brothels and houses of ill repute that once lined the streets. However in those days, Tango was considered devil’s music and only gansters and lowlife got to enjoy it.
