HAPPY INTERNATIONAL TANGO DAY!... Mixed media "La Milonga"

International Tango Day 11 December

commemorating the birthday of the tango singer Carlos Gardel, and the musician and composer Julio de Caro. 


This mixed technique, 50 x 70 cm. combines gouache, watercolor, colour pencils. It was created in 1997 intending to represent the atmosphere of a real milonga in a satiric way.

 It´s a hommage to two of my first tango teachers Roberto Contreras and Maria Lemos, who appear in the scene. 

It´s also a hommage to Carlos Gardel, a singer that brought me to tango with the nostalgy in his voice. 

It´s a hommage to the thousands of musician whose music I have danced to. 

And finally it´s a hommage to all tango dancers, specially those old "milongueros" that inspired all new generations of dancers, and who were so generous sharing their knowledge to everybody. Thanks to them Tango has survived many storms, and will survive current storm as well.
