- the recording period (among significant periods in the history of tango)
Once you've answered the first question, the correct answer's revealed and you move on to the next question. Once you've answered all four of them, click Start to get to the next song.
Special question types
Tango Music Quiz aims at improving your tango knowledge. Sometimes a different type of quiz may appear. It is usually a single question about tango culture (dance, music, history...), a maestro to recognize or some piece of lyrics to identify.
At the end of each quiz, you get some additional points. The number of points depends mainly on your good/wrong answers, but also on your current level and time to answer.
Because each of us has different tango music knowledge, the game adapts the difficulty automatically. Depending on the number of songs you try to identify, and your global % of good answers, you will play from level 0 (beginner) to level 17 (tango god). Players at level 0 will hear easy songs in a limited number. The more you rise in level, the greater the possibility of hearing not so well known tangos, in a greater number. The themes are labelled easy or hard to guess automatically, depending on the answers of all players. For example, La Bruja by D'Arienzo, as an all-time classic, will be guessed by experts and beginners alike, thus showing up at the lowest levels. An old ranchera by Lomuto, is rarely heard in milongas and will be hard to identify by beginners, so it should only show up in higher levels after a while.
