Back to Tango
We've just had a long weekend in Sydney - celebrating the Queen's birthday even though it isn't her birthday we all get a day off! - so we took ourselves out of Sydney and up the north coast for fresh air, walks on the beach, lots of yoga and great company.
We did miss the last night at Glebe Town Hall for La Milonga, which was Sydney's longest-running milonga and for many of us the first milonga where we got up and danced tango! I was sorry not to have the chance to go one last time and hope that they will be back when the renovations are finished.
We also missed some great milongas and a performance by the tango band Fuego Blanco at the Artarmon Nostalgic Tango Bar. So this weekend I will take myself off to the Sydney Conservatorium for a performance of TangoOz, the big(ger) tango band that is also made up of musicians from the Sydney Con and the Sydney Youth Orchestra. There's still time to book if you would also like to hear some great music from Sydney's up and coming tango musicians. Here's a Youtube video of their performance at last year's end of year concert!
