Bailonga: LIVE MUSIC with Mood Area 52
(by kella)
Tuesday, July 25th
8pm - 11pm
Upstairs Ballroom at the Vet's Club
16th & Willamette
 
In the first time in almost two years, Mood Area 52 will be performing live music at Bailonga! They are a long time community favorite when it comes to nuevo-tango and alternative and they are just so much fun to dance to! 

Come enjoy an evening of live nuevo tango music, 50/50 DJed music with Azalea Bradley and summer treats and beverages! 
 
Mood Area 52 started in 1998 as a Piazzola inspired neo-tango and silent film score ensemble. Since then the group has morphed into an ensemble defined more by instrumentation and mood than genre. Their most recent releases, Company Town and 1952 Philanski House, blend roots rock, instrumental tango, jazz, blues, Balkan influences, ranchera, and American folk, country, Brechtian cabaret, and classical music.

Bailonga: LIVE MUSIC with Cachivache
(by kella)
Tuesday, October 10th
8pm - 11pm
Upstairs Ballroom at the Vet's Club
16th & Willamette
 
Save the date for this exciting milonga happening this fall, when the tango quintet Cachivache travel from Buenos Aires to perform at Bailonga! They blend punk and tango together for modern tango compositions and are also phenomenal at traditional style tango music, making Bailonga the perfect home for their music! More info on this event will be posted closer to the date. 
 
From their website: 
 
"The Cachivache Quintet is currently one of the most popular tango groups and is widely recognized on the world music circuit. Sometimes called 'Tango Punk' ', the group is characterized by its undeniably creative, original, and very “danceable '' style.
 
In 2008, two Argentinian musicians living in Spain, Vito Venturino (guitar) and Pablo Montanelli (Piano) reconnect with their Porteñe roots and form the group Cachivache. They quickly attract attention in Europe and Asia for their very distinctively modern style. Once resettled in Buenos Aires, they begin to compose original pieces while also at the same time continuing to thrill dancers and fans of classic tango arrangements with an undeniably contemporary sound."
 
Check out their website for more info: http://www.elcachivache.info/
 
Here's an amazing live video of their rendition of Ella Es Asi:

TangoTools Seminars: Ready for extra flavors?
(by marisela)

ADDING FLAVOR TO YOUR TANGO

 Tangotools 7-8pm with or without partner.

 Explanation:

Twice a month on a Friday, I will share my take on the many tools  for dancing and understanding tango that I have acquired through more than 17 years of researching, dancing and teaching tango.
 
Each year, in my trip to Buenos Aires I make  a list of accomplished tango dancer whom teaching approach I want to check.
 
While many of the tango concepts are the same, the tools and techniques that each accomplished dancer  use  to explain their brand of tango, in most cases, seem diametrically opposed to the equally skillful tango dancer next door.  No wonder why there is tango war in many communities, but then that happens in any religion, politics and other human field. 
 
My idea for these seminars is not to change your mind about your tango or whatever style you most favor, but to open up to new additions that may enrich what you already possess. 
 
I will work with concepts and exercises that I own because they make sense to me and I have integrated them  in my dance or have tested their efficacy dancing with many partners.  
 
Come and give it a try, it may add that little extra for you and your partner enjoyment.
 
At 420 West 12th.
 
Here a taste of the concepts that we will be exploring: 
  • How to get more vocabulary into your dancing the painless way: Foot chasing and creative geometric.
  • How  to get the ahhhh feelings from the guy and the girl. The embracing lab.
  • I want to dance too- The follower inner confession and the guy's puzzle look: What do you mean?
  • Find the music in unusual places! ticky, ticky
  • And more, more... guarantee to have a fun and fulfilling experience. The concepts above are in not particular order.
