An impromptu bandoneon performance that literally left us with goosebumps!

Last night's casual get together to introduce the cast of 'Tango y Nada Mas' to the Sydney community was treated to a beautiful impromptu performance of tango music, song and dance that left us all reeling.
Young Nicholas Macaratesi is a beautiful virtuosic bandoneonist, whose mastery of his instrument gave us a playful medley of tango favourites, accompany the two singers, Claudio Garces and Nayla Danchuck, then  burst into a milonga for the six world class dancers. It took our collective  breath away.
Nicholas is very young yet his mastery of his instrument has already had him playing with some of the very best singers in Buenos Aires and recording with the Orquesta Escuela de Tango Emilio Balcarce.

The beautiful tenor voice of Claudio Garces has been a feature of Miguel Zotto's 'Tango x 2' as well as being a regular performer on Argentinian TV. And the soaring voice of the very young Nayla Danchuck is surely going to take her places. She sang with a passion …

Sydney's First Big Flashmob

It was bit like pulling a tooth trying to get Sydney people interested in doing a Flashmob to publicise tango - hard to understand when tango is just made for Flashmobs!

On Sunday a group of Sydney dancers milled about the Concourse at Chatswood - an amazing new space created by the local council as part of their $300million+ development - to raise awareness of the Tango y Nada Mas Show coming at the end of July.
Let's hope this is the first of many of these around Sydney - and that we can pull as a big a crowd as they did in Melbourne! (I was born in Melbourne so...)

De facto TangoAustralia home page

If you have found yourself here when you thought you were going to TangoAustralia - nothing is wrong! (not at your end anyway). You are in the right place. TangoAustralia's home page has been attacked by cyber forces (or whatever) yet again and so we have decided to direct you to this page for the time being!!
We use a free content management system to run TangoAustralia and it seems to be getting easier and easier for those with nothing better to do to hack into it!
So for the time being this is our Home Page!
We are planning to transfer many of the features of TA to this blog... and maybe just take it from there!
