Anticipating Tango

Just a few days before Sydney has it's first ever Sydney Salon Tango Festival with Big Name Dancers here to run workshops, perform, perform, perform and regular dancers like me suffer milonga overdose! Am looking forward to it... the only regret being that I would also love to be at Tango in Spring in Canberra which is on at the same time. Once upon a time in another life I wrote about gardens and flowers for a living and visiting Canberra at this time of year is famous for Floriade, a truly gorgeous display of spring flowers, gardens and a celebration of spring... a bonus for those visiting our national capital.
And I  am looking forward to the next couple of months as well. Have been working on a project for October that will bring a new element to the Sydney tango scene - which came together on the weekend! Then in November we will be the beneficiaries of two fabulous musicians from Buenos Aires who will be here to teach our young tango musicians more about the music of their heritage - just got the news on more of what will be happening today - almost a week of musical events!!
Last time these professors came to our shores the music that we were hearing from Fuego Blanco and TangoOz changed and became more like the music we hear so much on the recordings - the passion, the phrasing and nuances that had previously been missing were now married to their incredible technical abilities.
hmmm the pleasure of anticipation!

Hi Angelina,
You've been busy since I've been in Bali.

Will speak soon, but thank Sue for her recommendations for eating out in Ubud. Every cafe and restaurant on her list was fantastic.


PS: So, you got up to Byron Bay. Lucky girl.
