Osvaldo and Coca at Milongueando 2011

Osvaldo and Coca, wonderful as always - performing at the opening milonga of this year's Milongueando festival:

Do we even need words?  The proof is in the dancing.  They are once and forever champions of tango (and those who dispute it or want to character assassinate are only insanely jealous).

Dear Jessie and Dorian,

Osvaldo has had a bit of the flu for a few weeks now and even though he was feeling not so well on that day he still did this beautiful performance. Once Osvaldo and Coca are in the music, they don't care about anything else - and when you look at them dance you don't see their frailty, you only see tango. Their dance transport the audience right into the heart of the music with them. Only the masters could do this.

We called and spoke to Coca yesterday - both of them are doing well, Osvaldo has to take it easy, but they are still teaching their scheduled classes at Milongueando, as they have done for many years already. We don't think that Milongueando would be the same without them!

Thanks for your comment, and happy tangos!
