Abrazo Del Mar, Summer 2015

Abrazo Del Mar is the new name for Sonja & Sven’s tango activities in  Blankenberge. The venue is still Belgium Pier, but this summer edition is a pleasant mix between a tango marathon (lots of dancing) and a tango festival (demo by Maja & Marko, demo and workshops by Noelia & Carlitos)

Circuito Milonguero 2013, Torino


The best part of this job is all the great people you meet. We were invited to Torino by the amazing Ileana, to witness the Circuito Milonguero: not a marathon, not a festival but a series of 4 milongas in 1 weekend, a great way to get to know the local tango scene.

Beautiful venues, warm smiling people and great tango make it easy to take good pictures. I’m only halfway through the 3000+ pictures I took and I already like what Panni & me did.

Here’s the full album:
