Bailonga: LIVE MUSIC w/ Pablo Figueroa & Craig Einhorn
(by kella)

Save the date for this special live music event with our local guitarist Craig Einhorn and his friend Pablo Figueroa, an award-winning guitarist from Argentina. The two will play a full evening of tango guitar music for us to dance to! From their joint bio:

"While living in Argentina for several years Craig Einhorn and Pablo Figueroa met in a folk music club in Buenos Aires, Argentina called La Peña del Colorado. They became friends and eventually formed a bicultural collaboration involving the performance of Argentine music styles as well as other Latin American Styles and American music. Their repertoire is diverse and includes unfamiliar and familiar genres. Pablo is a true virtuoso of the classical guitar with a specific technique that can only be developed in Argentina. Craig is a bilingual singer, versatile guitarist, and percussionist."

You can see a live performance of Pablo and singer Sergio Veloso at the Balvanera Tango Festival in 2014 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_LTc7GJkjE

This will also be May’s Traditional Night, and food and drink will be served. More details coming soon.

 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.
