Not the last tango in Paris

Paris may be known for its romance, fashion and art but it's also the European capital of tango. This weekend the city is experiencing a tango takeover with thousands expected for the fourth "Grand Week-end Tango". One of the performers, Argentinian guitarist Tomas Gubitsch, joins Eve Jackson in the studio to talk about the evolution of tango since its birth among the working classes in the ports of Buenos Aires in the 19th century.
