Tango Tales: all about Argentine Tango – modern, Golden Age, electronico, alternative

Interview with Valorie Hart and Alberto Paz, the authors of Gotta Tango

audio


Alberto and Valorie, the master teachers from New Orleans, LA, USA, are known to the world of
tango for their wonderful newsletter/blog El Firulete.
Aside from El Firulete, Alberto and Valorie produce other blogs, podcasts and
materials. See Links section.

In 2005 they published the definitive reference on structure of the Argentine
tango, based on solid field and archival research. They watched and interviewed
the scores of the old-time milongueros and systematized the knowledge in this
unique book.

If you are a confused student of the Argentine tango, this book is an
excellent help for you to sort out what and how to learn about the Argentine
tango.

The topics of the interview: the evolution of the modern social tango, the
teaching and learning styles, cultural differences. All accompanied by great
musical intermissions, selected by Alberto and Valorie.
