I've just noticed that Tangotradicional videoed 17 tangos at Lujos milonga in October 2012, over two nights I think. A while back I wrote that it would be wonderful if there was an online camera at Lujos so it would be possible to drop in at any time and watch the dancing: it's not quite happened yet. I wrote '17 tangos' but the 17 clips include rock and chacarera, and sadly many of the tangos are shortened, but it's still a treat to watch much of the dancing here.
one of the top milongas for
is usually as good as it gets. The venue is more spacious than
El Beso, and
less of a hothouse. There's
a lot less chatter than in Normarin1's videos, which are of some of
the more sociable milongas, so the dancing is much more focused. For
is that the lighting is good, and
(unlike El Beso and Lo de Celia) there's usually space on the floor
and around it.
Apart from La Nacional, there's nowhere
else I know that you can get such a good view of what some of the best
social tango looks like at home. There
was always a
solid core of the older generation, and
I recognise familiar faces, among them Ricardo
course, Oscar Kotik, who organises it with Lucia.
also has videos of tandas at Lujos.
P.S. Apologies, I made a mistake and linked this to the Abretango channel, so I was puzzled when the videos weren't there. In fact all those videos are still there -- on the Tangotradicional channel. More or less the same people, I think, so it wasn't an unreasonable error. I'm delighted to have found the videos again. A great pleasure to watch.
