Tango Bardo is cocaine for the dance floor. Given in the right amount it releases a magnificent outburst of energy to behold. Take too much and you are in trouble.
These Pugliese valses start on a positive note then dive deep into more lyrical waters.
We almost made it through another Friday the 13th, and so to calm our nerves, here is a soothing, warm tanda for our empty embraces.
This week's tanda delivers a powerful lyrical narrative for the mature audience.
I put together a tanda of milongas from the 2007 album of Esteban Morgado, "Milongueros".
This week's tanda is a journey into the dark - for the prepared milonguero.
Alberto Castillo, made famous by his collaboration with Ricardo Tanturi, had an enormously long career. His vocal expressions were unique and entertaining without getting in the way of a good ronda.
This mix progresses from a very romantic starting point towards a place that is somehow more solid, if you will; it's not a weepy tanda. It is lyrical but also quite masculine.
Tanturi's instrumentals from 1940s are one of my staples. I love the beats and the energy. So will your dancers!
