I am pleased to announce that this Sunday and Monday, March 21 & 22, 2021, I will be a guest at Ayano Yoneda’s virtual tango events, “Bailongo de los domingos” and “Una noche de poesía.” This weekend marks the one year anniversary of these events!
On Sunday at Bailongo De Los Domingos, we will listen to 10 songs with lyrics by José María Contursi, one of my personal favorites, as recorded by a variety of different orchestras, with lyrics projected as you listen. This will include the world debut of four translations that have yet to appear here!
Then on Monday, we will take a deep dive into “Gricel,” Contursi’s most personal tango, based on his real-life love story.
These events will be streamed live on Zoom (password: gotan), and will start each evening at 8:00pm PDT (GMT -7).
