Tango, Buenos Aires
Tango shows - I was very surprised, I thought this might just be a tourist ripoff but it isn't. It is one of the most fantastic shows I have ever seen. The meal that came with it was great and the whole audience really enjoyed it.
True BA flavor, BA is home to the tango and you can see couples dance it on many street corners but this show was something else
This is motherland of famous tango. Tango is a sad dance, born here by union of different cultures: Italian, Spanish, German, Arab, Russian, Ukrainian, Cecoslovacca, Jewesh and...... You cannot leave Buenos Aires without see this special show.
Buenos Aires is the birth place of Tango. The tour guide tried to sell tickets to an expensive show, but I found out that street performers were dancing to Tango as well along Calle Florida.
En las calles de San Telmo los fines de semana hay hasta clases de tango
In San Telmo streets the week ends you may see tango schools
The National Dance.
It incorporates the essence of passion. It is intense, yet gentle. I loved watching this dance.
Thats all I need ,I love Tango and a good cup of coffee and Buenos Aires has them both in great abundance.
I will write more as soon as I can get some of my pictures here soon.
As we were walking away from the Leather district, we found this statue of Osvaldo Pedro Pugliese, a famous tango musician who passed in 1995, and still getting fresh flowers from his fans.
In the streets of Buenos Aires you always find a couple performing a show of tango. This picture was taken in San Telmo, where the open market takes place.
Everywhere in BA is Tango. You can pay for a tourist show, see a cultural exhibiton at the teatro colon or see street performers.
Cafe Tortoni is a coffee shop that has a stage for Tango shows at night.
Also has t shirts,cups for gifts to bring back home to those who couldnt make it.
We had a private hour-long tango lesson in a beautiful vintage studio. It was a lot of fun, and came in handy when I was surprisingly pulled up on stage at Cafe Tortoni!!!
There are tourist places like Senor Tango and Piazzolla but then there are some milangros around town that you should also go checkout as well. Some will show tango mixed with salsa.
if you go to buenos aires, must go to Corrientes street, bohemian zone, and watch a tango dancing show...that's life!!!
