These milongas are relaxed, a bit drunk, and not at all pretentious.
I return to my old passion for heart-rending 1950s and 1960s tangos because nothing works better for keeping one's mental state within the healthy range during the COVID lockdown, now does it?
I give you a tanda with four different orchestras giving hommage to Miguel Caló.
I give you an instrumental tanda built around a popular birthday vals, Lágrimas y sonrisas.
I am bringing back the Tanda of the week to help speed up the return of milongas, even as it is just my wishful thinking. But, we can at least tune in mentally. We can imagine things. And who else could guide us through this dream than the legedary dream-weaver Osvaldo Pugliese with his trusted singer, Alberto Morán.
I bring you the orchestra of Enrique Francini with his Majesty, Alberto Podestá.
Do you feel like you want to punish the floor real bad, perhaps out of frustration from the prolonged tango desert? If so, I've got some beats for you.
It's Labor Day in Europe, which means nobody is working. Imagine you've walked into a chill afternoon milonga / tango café, dressed casually and not expecting too much drama. Welcome! I give you a mixed tanda of valses to get you started.
An easy walk through a park to the beats of Francisco Canaro.
This week's tanda is progressive. Enter four bands with four contemporary-sounding expressions of tango.
