Tango lovers are in for a treat this Saturday, as pianist Rene Casarsa and Casa Argentina present the 15th year of the series "Tango Time," a celebration of the music of tango with several guest musicians and dancers. The performance is at 7 p.m. at Jones Hall on the campus of the University of St. Thomas.

Houston Public Media's St.John Flynn talked with Casarsa and singer Andrea Berri – both native Argentinians – about how tango became not only music to be danced to, but also to be sung.

St.John began by asking Casarsa what about tango captivates him.
