It is Thursday evening and Andrea Monti walks in to a popular Milonga in San Francisco. She just returned from a trip to New York where she was promoting the “Argentine Tango USA Official Festival & Championship 2015” which starts on April 2 in San Francisco. Prior to her New York trip she traveled to Los Angeles, also promoting the Festival, giving interviews about the four-day event on local and national radio and television stations, the biggest and most important of them being CBS. As a matter of fact, she says, ever since CBS discovered that an official branch of the Argentine Tango Championship takes place in San Francisco, they have been eager to report about it.
You find people of all ages, all social backgrounds, all races and all political view points. They come together because they have one thing in common: Their fascination with Tango!
This is my very first Tango post. I’m very excited! My plan is to write a new story as often as possible about what’s interesting in the Tango world. I want this site to be different. I’m taking my time to investigate, to research, to provide you with gripping stories, stories that make you come back for more. Tango is a mini cosmos filled with music, dance, personal drama, passion, sadness, adventure, change. You find people of all ages, all social backgrounds, all races and all political view points. They come together because they have one thing in common: Their fascination with Tango! I hope that my site will attract both Tango aficionados and people who know nothing about Tango. We are not as weird or different as you may think! And even if you never get into it, if you never learn the dance or never even like the music, I hope you will continue to read! And please feel free to send me your suggestions about what you may think is worth blogging about in Tango! Hope to see you around a lot!
