Wow... Fabulous end to a sad week

I've been meaning to post this all week but haven't yet got my head around the loss of one of our most revered tangueros. Eduardo Massey was much loved in the tango community as his funeral showed - the chapel was packed! He left this world suddenly after a brief illness and we will miss his smile, his friendship, his jokes, his knowledge of tango music and his deft footwork on the dance floor (a skill learnt playing soccer at the top level in his youth). Eduardo would have loved to have seen the skill and the passion that a young couple who have been dancing in Sydney for some years displayed on Saturday night at the Tango Entre Amigos Milong a in Marrickville. Matias Conca (son of Karina and Fabian who are 2 of the principles of TEA) and his partner Janna Lopez danced a fabulous version of 'Tanguera' and an even more awesome milonga 'La Cicatriz' and wowed the crowd. I have watched this young couple since they first danced at the Australian Tango Champi
