I can't believe it's already 21st of April! I have 8 days to complete my next song. What do you think about the winning words? I got so excited that I ended up drawing 4 winners but my first pick is definitely the most important one. So that means I will build the message of the song around the words tango, floor and embrace.
These words are actually quite personal to me because I dance Argentine tango and it's enriched my life a lot.
As most tangueros, I got into dancing by accident. A friend "forced" me to join her at a tango event and I got totally hooked. That was almost exactly 4 years ago. Cool, this will be an anniversary song in a way!
The winning words were actually submitted by a dear friend of mine and one of my first tango teachers, Nadia Tapia. She's an inspiring person and a lovely dancer with gorgeous footwork ;-) So yeah, I hope I'll make her proud with my next creation.
Tango is a great social dance. It's meditational and improvisational - and it's almost never as sleezy as some movies present it. Dancing tango is actually like playing a soundless instrument and being immersed in complex and emotional high quality music - that all in a dialogue with another person. Sounds awesome, doesn't it?
Now you're probably wondering if I'll write a tango. Nope. I'll leave that to the geniuses of Di Sarli, Biagi, Pugliese etc. but I will write ABOUT tango so maybe you'll hear some bits of inspiration here and there. Stay tuned for info on my progress! I'm kinda nervous already :-)))
