Nuevo vs. traditional tango

Two men – one dancing tango nuevo and the other a traditional tango dancer – were sentenced to die on the same day. They were led down to the room in which they would meet their maker. The priest had given them last rites, the formal speech had been given by the warden, and a final prayer had been said. The warden, turning to the first man, solemnly asked, ‚Son, do you have a last request?’ To which the man replied, ‚Yes sir, I do. I love tango music. Could you please play some nuevo for me one last time?’ ‚Certainly,’ replied the warden. He then turned to the other man and asked, ‚Well, what about you, son? What is your final request?’ ‚Please,’ said the condemned man, ‚kill me first.
