Gloria & Rodolfo Dinzel dance to ‘Pata Ancha’ by Osvaldo Pugliese at Nora’s Tango Week, 2003. Watch ‘til the end for an improvised and creative surprise.
Being back in London, there hasn’t been a milonga where someone hasn’t asked me if there will be more editions of abrazos in the future. Whilst there won’t be an abrazos on 28th August and officially we’ve been on a break, I wanted to say I’ve missed it too.
There may be a chance that the break is coming to end, but in the meanwhile here are some tunes to keep you dancing on Monday afternoon.

Chicho & Juana work their magic again. When I watched this video it reminded me of something I mentioned in class at the last edition of abrazos, about the contrast of dancing rhythms and melodies. Lots of that here. My favourite is at 2mins 40s. Enjoy.
As the Tango world remembers Osvaldo Pugliese today here’s a tango from a young Pablo Veron, in a Sunderland that seems quite different from what we know it to be today.
