From Rebecca Pawel comes this footage from Tangomania in Amsterdam, December 2009. It’s amazing for the music and the skill of the two dancers—and Pawel points out that “tango has a bit of the same image problem as romance novels…a set of Old Skool stereotypes that don’t really reflect its actual complex reality. Only instead of heaving bosoms and ripped bodices in tango it’s slicked-back hair and roses between the teeth and grimacing expressions that look like indigestion.”
It’s mesmerizing, this one. Enjoy, and have a tangoriffic weekend.
ETA: Am trying to find out what song that is – do you recognize it? Googling the lyrics “Aunque no los nombres” yields nothing.
