Carlo Sansour Workshop Weekend

Posted: 21:17, Tuesday 31 October 2017 by Mark Stojani

Updated: 23:40, Tuesday 21 November 2017 by Mark Stojani

One of Adelaide tango scene’s original key figures, inaugural SiempeTangoAdelaide teacher, president and great dancer Carlo Sansour is visiting for a whistle stop weekend of wshops thiscoming 4th and 5th of November.

Carlo Sansour is one of the tango pioneers in Germany. He came to work with legends of tango such as Antonio Todaro and Pepito Avellaneda. He was the first DJ in Stuttgart and has been very influential in shaping the tango scenes in the whole of South-West of Germany, one of the main tango regions in Europe. He established Siempre Tango in Karlsruhe, Germany, and in Adelaide, Australia, and is the creator of a series of tango festivals in Karlsruhe and Baden-Baden, which has become one of the finest tango festivals in Europe. His Djing reflects this background as he strives to strike a balance between the strong beat and the melody; what he plays must be moving. He is a committed teacher who exhibits a broad background touching on all styles of tango, however, his priority is tango de salon, specifically a modern version of the milonguero style.

The weekend schedule is as follows;

Saturday 4th Nov


2-3.30pm (WShop 1) Close embrace attractive dancing in crowded milongas.

3.45-5.15 (WShop 2) Dancing to D’Arienzo. The power of the rhythm.

Musings on Tango

In memory of Alberto Podesta

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

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: 00:13, Monday 8 June 2015 by Lucy Lu

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?
