Due to a technical issue, today’s Death of Tango was not recorded. Has any of you recorded it and can share it with me? Thanks!

Since I was not able to hold a show yesterday, I share with you a tango gem that I found on YouTube, as today’s Tango Of The Day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJG_LkQJSYs
This is a good demonstration that tango used to be danced among men. Seeing the picture makes me imagine the situation more easily. I suppose in those times dancing tango was something close to a game, like playing cards.
