Musings on Tango

In memory of Alberto Podesta

Posted: 23:16, Sunday 20 December 2015 by Lucy Lu

Alberto Podesta has left this world to sing for God. In milongas, every DJ played a special tanda in memory of the great singer.

Personally, NADA is my favorite song from Podesta. This recent live performance below was recorded by a friend visiting BsAs. Such a beautiful voice….

How would you dance if this is your last song together?

Posted: 00:43, Monday 8 June 2015 by Lucy Lu

Full of emotions in this song. Maybe it is the song itself, or maybe it was Pablo and Noelia’s last song performed together as a couple. She chose a Chilean as dancing partner and married to an Italian later, and she is famous and popular over the world. Do you know who he is?
