Seoul Tango festival 2012

My longtime dream became true in May when I had possibility to participate to the Seoul Tango festival. I have all my life been interested in Asia and I have earlier been two times in both China and Japan so it was time to visit Korea! and Tango there!

Here you have the first sights from the festival filmed by the organizers Florencia and Leonel! The canvas video is filmed by me on the way to the Grand milonga on Saturday evening, 5th of May. Maestros on the festival were Miguel Angel Zotto y Florencia Roldan; Javier Rodriguez y Virginia Pandolfi and Christian Marquez y Virginia Gomez "Los Totis". I was interested in the Dansers group with performers from Pohang, Beijing, Taipei, Hong Kong and Buenos Aires. Quite young and talented dancers and many of them have started to dance tango as late as around 2005!  Unbelievable!

Take the opportunity and enjoy their dances here!

When you hover over the video icon you get some more information and if you click on the video a playlist will start!
