José Guillermo Salurso

May 17, 1934 — November 22, 2009

El Tano Guillermo didn’t allow anyone to film him in the milongas, so there is no footage of him.  Although he went regularly to the milongas during the last years of his life, he didn’t dance.  This is the only photo I have of him on the dance floor.  Forever Tango had a long run in Chicago, so I took El Tano to see the show.  He danced with Guillermina Quiroga at the Chicago Athletic Club.

When TangoX2 was performing in Chicago, the cast was invited to the best milonga in town at Tango…nada mas hosted by Bob Dronski and Kathleen Kreher.  El Tano Guillermo was there to enjoy the milonga with Miguel Angel and Osvaldo Zotto.
