Sorry, but current Covid restrictions mean we have had to defer the Coriole Winery Milonga from planned date of 28 January. Stay tuned for further details.

And thanks to Michael Speck who recently retired from the Committee, the last two years as President. Rod Krischock has now taken on the role of President.

 
 

2022 Tango and Covid

Posted: 16:47, Tuesday 11 January 2022 by RodK

Updated: 17:17, Tuesday 11 January 2022 by RodK

The Committee of Siempre Tango, Rod Krischock, Gerda Menzel and Liz Jones, have planned a program of milongas and practicas for 2022 (see “Calendar”) on the basis of Covid restrictions as they existed late 2021.

However 2022 has begun with a new variant that has prompted the government to introduce tighter restrictions, so we may not be able to deliver all of the scheduled events. We will update the Siempre calendar as the situation unfolds and ask for your patience and support as we do our best to bring you as many dancing opportunities as we can in 2022.

Thank you. The Committee

Musings on Tango

In memory of Alberto Podesta

Posted: 23:16, Sunday 20 December 2015 by Lucy Lu

Updated: 23:20, Thursday 17 March 2016 by Ben

Alberto Podesta has left this world to sing for God. In milongas, every DJ played a special tanda in memory of the great singer.

Personally, NADA is my favorite song from Podesta. This recent live performance below was recorded by a friend visiting BsAs. Such a beautiful voice….

How would you dance if this is your last song together?

Posted: 00:43, Monday 8 June 2015 by Lucy Lu

Updated: 23:10, Friday 28 February 2020 by Michael Speck

Full of emotions in this song. Maybe it is the song itself, or maybe it was Pablo and Noelia’s last song performed together as a couple. She chose a Chilean as dancing partner and married to an Italian later, and she is famous and popular over the world. Do you know who he is?
