Thank you to Juan de Scarfo who invited us to his new Milonga – Baires – in Warwick on 18 November. We taught a class and performed during the evening but we also managed to play a couple of tandas of some of our beautiful shellacs.
A special thank you to Ella Sharp for my beautiful red dress 🙂
We had the pleasure to return to the Cotswolds once more to lead some workshops and then join the Milonga in the evening and perform. A beautiful evening once more!
On Saturday 4th November we taught the Intermediate class at The Light and then during the Milonga we played sets of 78’s, original tango recordings.
This was very special for us to share with people. Not only do we love Tango music but all of these 78’s came from some very special people. My first Tango 78’s were given to me by a friend who searched through old shops in Buenos Aires and carried a huge weight of them home, trying to keep them safe in his hand luggage. A precious gift indeed! Thank you Michele x
The rest of our 78’s were also gifted to us by a family member of Luis in Buenos Aires who lived around the corner from Alberto Moran! So we thank you as well Roque Cosimo and Elsa Beatriz Predieri for your generosity and all the pleasure we have already had from listening to these recordings. xxx
Here are our videos from our recent performances at Bury Tango:
We were delighted to join Bury Tango on Sunday 15th October, where we taught two workshops in the afternoon and performed during the tea dance.
We would like to say a big thank you to Mick and Esme at Bury Tango for inviting us. We were surrounded by a fantastic group of people who we really enjoyed sharing our tango with. A beautiful afternoon ❤️
I never remember to take photos, but I did snap these two from one of the workshops
On 8th October we joined Tango Cotswold for the first time. We had a beautiful afternoon and evening getting to know everyone. The Milonga was full of lovely dancers and a warm environment, with wonderful music from David Thomas, we enjoyed sharing our dance with you through our performance. A special thanks to Ann, Alan and Debbie for your invitation, all your hard work, attention to detail and hospitality. ❤❤❤ @Tango Cotswold
We had a wonderful evening on Wednesday 26th July at The Light Milonga in London where we took our collection of Tango 78’s, dj’ing two sets and performing to three of the original 78’s as part of the evening.
The last two months have been so busy that we have not had time to write for a while! But we have had a marvellous Summer so far and wanted to share a few of the highlights here.
June – We were invited to be a part of Taste of London this year, performing every day alongside food and wine companies from Argentina and Latin America. The weather was scorching but the crowd were amazing. Videos to follow…
1 July – Art Night
Tango y Nada Mas were invited to take part in Art Night on 1 July 2017. Artist Melanie Manchot curated a project combining the many dance forms to be found in East London and a group of us representing Tango y Nada Mas, danced through the streets from the Water Poet to Exchange square where Luis and I taught a Tango lesson on what seemed to be an inflatable mattress!! Quite an experience and what a crowd!!!!
The next day we did a taster lesson and performance for local residents in Peckham as part of the Big Lunch
Also in July, we were invited to perform as part of Comida Fest, taking place in Greenwich, a wonderful setting in front of the Cutty Sark. Videos to follow 🙂
We were delighted to be invited by The Argentine Embassy and Tango Road to perform at a special event in Borough Market on Saturday 27th May. It was a wonderful evening with a great crowd of people. Many Tangueros turned up to dance and we welcomed members of the public to join our community!
