Tango Dream

Guadalupe Jolicoeur
"The tango has the power to pull two strangers together into one,
 to dance out their desires...to be great lovers and heroes, if
 only for a moment. It's the whisper of sensuality brought
 on by the hint of perfume. The tango is also the glamour
 of the ballroom and the allure of the underworld. It's
 the opulence of Paris and the smoky darkness of a
 Buenos Aires cafe. It's the world of subtle metaphors
 that captures the melancholy heart."
 This Is The Tango slides from simple, steamy music
enjoyed by those on the margins of society to
elaborate ballroom arrangements.
Argentinean-born Guadalupe Jolicoeur is
your perfect tango partner with her warm voice
and knowledgeable commentary. October 30th, '98
on CBC Radio Two she hosted a special concert
presentation of Piazzolla's seldom heard
'operita' 'Maria de Buenos AIres'.

Jolicoeur is very interested in Latin American
cultural issues and has traveled to Argentina,
Brazil and Cuba to research and write about
popular music. She comes from a musical family
and is currently studying tango dance.
 Join her here in RealAudio
 and explore this pleasure
 that tastes so much of longing and grief.

"Un magnífico programa:
Sin paliativos, la CBC,
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation,
ha emitido una serie de 3 programas
dedicados al tango, realmente
maravillosos debidos a la mano de
la escritora Guadalupe Jolicoeur.
"
José Alberto Mariñas
El Tango (Spain)

excellent radio programs about
the history of Tango with Guadalupe
Jolicoeur in 3 Real Audio files from

"...Felipe, what's 'Tango Talk' "
"Well Mafalda, last summer Guadalupe took her
microphone to Vancouver's 'Whip Gallery Café'
and between tango dance numbers talked with
famed dance instructor Carlos Loyola, and other
tango guests.

..says on the screen here to click on the picture
of the smart couple staring at their Computer?"
