We’re very happy to visit for our first time, the famous TangoAmadeus Tango Festival in Vienna, Austria.
We just did the busiest festival we ever did, in Istanbul, Turkey. Maral, Esref & Murat organised the 7th edition of TanGOTOIstanbul, with 10 maestros, 5 big salons with demos, 3 concerts with two famous tango orchestras and much more. We shot an obscene amount of pictures over a span of 40 hours in 5 days. We loved the people there, the energy, and after the 5 days, the possibility of sleeping past noon.
Enjoy the pics here:
Ah, to be back in Italy after all this time! The people, the food, the dancing, what’s not to love? There could be some more sun, though. Thanks to Maria Elena & Marcello for inviting me!
The maestros: Dana & Adrian, Juana & Chicho, Moira & Gaston.

Friday night of the aRealidades festival: live music from Quinteto Sonor / Demo from Carolina Lafata & Cristian Duarte and Julieta Falivene & Pedro Farias:
More pictures from the fabulous aRealidades show. Tonight we have the last performance and then the workshops and milongas are starting.
Stockholm turns out to be a swell city. It’s green, clean, not too cold, the variety in expresso bars is impressive, but most of all the friendliness of the Swedes is striking. If you’re in need of anything, they help you out in excellent English and otherwise they’ll just start chatting.
aRealidades seeks to explore human instincts in social relations: love, violence, power, creation, acceptance. The choreography tells a story about the world we live in today, about the endless search for balance and hope.
The performance starts with Quinteto Sonor, a young tango ensemble from Sweden.
After that, the dance begins. Eight dancers from DNI take us along a trip in human relations and strong emotions.
