I’m a little late to post about tango and football, they have been playing for a week already in the World Cup. I deejayed on the opening night and made sure to play a couple of football-related songs, Independiente Club and Racing Club. Don’t think anyone noticed though.

Homenaje a los milongueros -- the show

Breathtaking

I was so excited to see how it worked out with Stella and Javier on their tour this year. And this is just soooo beautiful! My piano teacher used to tell me when I practiced the hard parts: don’t forget breathing!
