Anthony Cronin says
‘The approach is refreshing and the book has enough detail to last you for several readings as your understanding of the wide domain of tango music and it’s history grows.
The approach is as follows. Each orquestra starts with a personal story about the leader, then a section on their signature sounds throughout their career. Then the singers are discussed and finally the key musicians and a summary. These are not laced with long lists of single release dates that make pages look like a balance sheet. There is a charming balance of detail and flow, to make a light and readable story that helps you grow in your understanding. The movement of key people, especially singers across orquestras is also tracked in a nice way.
This is a book for you if you are now dancing and starting to recognise the different orquestas, If you already know them well and their songs but never got into the background.’

VERONICA PALACIOS has her own unique style, combining the true salon heritage with a touch of tango fantasia. Grace, elegance and sensuality are all essential qualities of her dance- along with the freedom to have fun and play! This is infectious- and will inspire us all to liberate the unique dancer in each of us….
Unfortunately, her partner, Omar Quiroga, was due to travel with her, but has been indisposed. FORTUNATELY, we have the exciting combination of our very own resident maestro ALBERTO ORTIZ, who will be improvising together with Vero…. we will be on the edge of our seats as Tango once more shows us how new converstionas can begin with strangers who share the same language.
