Andrea Missé

2012, like all new years, is supposed to start with a bang. Unfortunately the tango world has lost yet another of its stars – and a great personal teacher – Andrea Missé.

My prayers go out to her family, some of whom I understand still remains in intensive care at this moment.

This is a clip of the dance by current and previous champions at the recently concluded Salon section of the annual World Tango Championship held in Buenos Aires.

Curious about music

According to the logs, occasionally I seem to get a lot of hits on the lists of CDs that I maintain on this blog:

All about Tango in Singapore

With increasing ease plus a zero-cost(!) set-up provided by many free social networking tools currently available, there is suddenly a number of useful online sources (not necessarily overlapping) to tango happenings in Singapore. Together they will be more accurate than the once-reliable website which has been slow to keep up with the updates in recent months. Well, here are all of them in one place:

  1. Facebook: Tango Singapore
  2. Facebook: “Bailamos Tango en Singapur” (no longer active, 2012)
  3. Private domain: Tango Singapore

Of course, there is also the long-standing list of milongas and practicas in Singapore in this blog which I will try to keep up to date.
