Vocalist, Enrique Carbel from Buenos Aires
According to recent investigations made by the Argentine writer, Eros Nicola Siri , the tango is of African origin and derives its name from the ' Tangano ', a Negro dance, much in vogue in Central America in the early part of the eighteenth century, whence it had been transplanted from Africa by the slaves who worked the Cuban and Haitian plantations. The Negroes who later migrated from those Central Ameri can countries brought the Tangano to the River Plate, where it took root amongst the peoples on both the Argentine and Uruguayan coasts, where it was also known as the ' Candombe '. There it merged with the habaneras, boleros, polkas, and mazurkas of European origin, and gradually acquired a distinctive rhythm and style of its own, eventually described as the Argentine tango.
The present programme will show the development of the tango from its beginnings up to its latest forms.

The story of Æsop's fox told in the manner of a Silly Symphony
Words and music by HENRY REED followed by a short programme of MUSIC, SONG, AND STORY in which you will hear THE THREE SEMIS, and THE CHILDREN'S HOUR ORCHESTRA will play some of the music specially written for them (Northern Programme)
The little musical play, Fox Fable, is founded on several of Æsop's fables about the fox-those chronicling his adventures with the grapes, the goat, the stork, and the crow. You will also hear something about the fox without a tail and Æsop's frogs. There will be solos by the fox, the goat, the crow, and the stork, and the little frogs will sing the choruses throughout.
The frogs, Tim, Tom, and Turn will be broadcast by The Three Semis — Violet Carson, Doris Gamble, and Muriel Levy - who are old favourites with listeners to the Children's Hour in the North.
Henry Reed is a well-known radio composer who wrote the music to The Flying Classroom and The Black Duke and the White Duke.
