A basic tangos rhythm, played here with cajón and palmas. The compás of tangos accents the 2, 3, and 4 beats of a four beat cycle (commonly paired with another four beat cycle, giving phrases in 8’s). As is usually the case with the traditional tangos, the "one" count here is silent. Be sure to pay attention to your phrasing so that you don’t end up one beat fuera de compás (i.e. one beat out of phase).
