"Argentine" or "Argentinian"

What we call things from other countries comes from what we call the countries for example we don't call french things "francais" or German things "Deutsch".
Well, in Deutsch we rarely talk about "argentinischen Tango" nor hardly ever call it "argentinischer Tango" but "Tango Argentino", i. e. we use the Spanish term to differentiate it from ballroom tango.

I just checked Google to verify my theory and noticed that there are many more hits for "argentinischer Tango" than I had thought but more than 10 times as many for "Tango Argentino". I hear dancers always talk about "Tango Argentino", not about "argentinischen Tango".
