Cumbre de tango

June 7, 2014

I solved a mystery.  I haven’t been able to listen to the program until today.  That’s because I didn’t have the correct link.  You can listen now.  The program began only minutes ago.

Cumbre de tango

May 24, 2014

Carlos Fanel, Tito Aquino and Jantango in the studio of Mundo Sur FM

Carlos Fanel and Tito Aquino have found a new home for Cumbre de tango.  They begin the third year of the program today at noon (BA time) on Radio Lexia (with video).  The audio portion is available on YouTube.

Yesterday and today are holidays in Argentina for Dia de Carnaval.  Children are about ready to return to school this week after three months of vacation.  Teachers usually go on strike for a salary increase which delays school openings.  Carnaval is the last party night for all.

Carnaval means dozens of street vendors are selling aerosol cans of white foam.  Kids are covered with it and having a ball spraying their friends.

Carnaval brings out the Murga dancers in their elaborate costumes.  The corner of Boedo and Carlos Calvo was the scene last night.  I arrived just in time to maneuver through the crowd and find a spot in front of the stage where Ariel Ardit and his Orquesta Tipica performed while a few couples danced tango on the street.  He featured the compositions of Anibal Troilo from his latest compact disc.  This was another preview of what’s in store for the Troilo Centennial in July.

Ariel Ardit commented how tango as popular music should be available to the public in more free concerts.  That got a big round of applause.

After three weeks of technical problems at Mundo Sur resulting in cancelled broadcasts, Tito Aquino and Carlos Fanel are moving to a new location with Cumbre de Tango.  They’ve kept their plans secret from me so far, so stay tuned for further information.

Memory test

January 12, 2014

It began as a mental review of dancing at Lo de Celia, making note of all tandas I danced — with whom and which orchestra, and when I can remember, specific titles.  It has turned into my short-term memory test after every milonga.

I decided to wait until Monday to write my list from one Sunday’s milonga and see how I did on my memory test a day later.

Osvaldo Pugliese Orquesta with Julio Fortunato — I arrived at my table when the tanda started, and I was greeting my table companion Margarita.  His big smile in my direction was difficult to miss.  I don’t care what music is playing when Julio looks my way — I want to dance with him.  His embrace is divine.  After the first tune, I recognized it was Pugliese which I prefer listening to instead of dancing.  Julio said that the milonga is where he can forget about all his problems at work and where he feels no pain.

Anibal Troilo Orquesta (’41) with Jorge De Gouvea — We usually dance milonga con traspie, but he invited me for tango after the first tune.  I didn’t recognize the orquesta as Troilo with Fiorentino, so I asked Erwin the deejay.  Then Jorge caught my attention to dance.

Juan D’Arienzo valses with Humberto Morales —  He’s hidden behind the front row of men on the opposite corner of the floor.  I’m so glad he came over.  He said, I almost have to send you a letter to dance with you.

Chacarera with Margarita who joins me at my table.  This is the only time I do the man’s role in a dance!

Carlos Di Sarli Orquesta (’50) with Tito Aquino — This tanda is reserved for Tito.

Juan D’Arienzo/Hector Maure with Jorge De Gouvea —  I  know it’s impossible for Jorge to stay seated during this tanda.  I looked in his direction.  The energy was incredible.

Dixieland Jazz  with Julio Alejo — If Graciela isn’t at the milonga, I know that Julio will invite me for jazz.  He doesn’t mind that I sing the tunes I know so well.

A night is complete for me with Di Sarli and Troilo tangos, and D’Arienzo valses.
