Osvaldo and Coca - Homanaje a Mercedes Simone, April 14, 2012

The lovely Myriam Pincen just posted this video on Facebook - a riveting performance by Osvaldo and Coca at an event honouring the singer Mercedes Simone at Gricel on April 14, 2012:

Exhibición de los Campeones Mundiales de Tango Salón 2004, OSVALDO Y COCA, durante el Homenaje a la gran cancionista MERCEDES SIMONE. Evento realizando el sábado 14 de abril de 2012, en CLUB GRICEL (Buenos Aires). La pareja se luce bailando un hermoso tango cantado por Mercedes Simone. Con la presencia de Dorita R. Mariño, hija de la homenajeada cancionista y compositora.
(Rough translation: Exhibition of the World Champions of Tango Salon 2004, Osvaldo and Coca, during the homage of the great singer Mercedes Simone.  This event was held on April 14, 2012 in Club Gricel (Buenos Aires).  The shining couple are dancing a beautiful tango sung by Mercedes Simone, in the presence of Dorita R. Mariño, daughter of the homaged singer and composer.)

Osvaldo and Coca are always fabulous but this is even more wonderful than usual - because the tango is very hard to express in dance!  When the audience is clapping, they are applauding Osvaldo and Coca's musicality and interpretation of the music.
