TangoAustralia and Angelina's Tango Blog


Bandoneon in profile - no musicianI discovered tango in Australia in 1999 at WOMADelaide.  It was a magical night with a trio of tango musicians, calling themselves Esquina, playing on a stage under the pine trees, made even more magical when two couples danced into view. I fell in love instantly and when I returned to Sydney joined one of the two known tango classes in town.  Much has changed since then.

For many years I was passionate about spreading the word and this is where Angelina’s Tango Blog came in – the first post was published in a now defunct format about 15 years ago.  My involvement in organising the first 3 tango championships in Sydney plus a number of flash mobs, festivals and special events gave me plenty to write about. 

These days I enjoy what others organise – especially the tango bands. I plan to continue to keep you informed about tango in our part of the world – and I hope to see you on the dance floor or at a tango event soon!
