Dear friends from Tango list

Today , in ARgentina, will be the last day for the old notes of ARG$ 50 &
ARG$ 100.

The new notes already issued and being used massively (due to high security
measures in their
printing) are being supplied by all the ATM machines around Buenos Aires.

Tne new notes have in their left side , a bright vertical line of dots .If
the note is placed against
the light, it is clearly seen this line of dots as a full line, since the
special material used for this
line has been sewed in the surface and within the surface of the note, to
prevent the printings
of fake notes.

Also the numbers printed on the new notes , in their left upper corner
"50" ,"100") have a special treatment
called "optimum variability" , which means that the color of the numbers
change from green to blue, depending
the angle of light that receive.

Old notes of 50 & 100 , will be acepted for change from next monday , only
at Banco de la Nacion Argentina
branches , and Banco Central . Since there are branches of Banco de la
Nacion Argentina at the Ezeiza international
airport , I suppose there will be no problem for those departing tourists
this weekend, that will change their peso notes
for another currency , when leaving to their countries of origin.

Warm milonguero regards
Alberto Gesualdi

What times we live in, eh?

Best to have seat-belts fastened.

I've only been around tango for 20 years, so I'm a newbie. But my studies
and sense tell me that more has been changing in the last 15 years than
had been happening during the previous 4 decades.

We had the resurgence of tango which followed Tango Argentino in the

Then we had the development which came from people going to Argentina
starting in the mid-90's and finding out it was a much different thing
than what they had been taught.

As well, I think a wonderful development coming out of the work of don
Emilio Balcarces's Escuela De Tango and Roberto Alvarez's Color Tango.
There were great musicians doing good things, but these two had great
influence which showed dancers tango music was a living thing.

Then the Gustavo/Fabian/Pablo/Chicho re-examination of movement, etc. And
the resultant nuevo strain which was propelled by the musicians going for
that, like Gotan (one can't deny their enormous success).

All these people were pioneers in their way.

Dancer/teachers grew in fame and travelled spreading knowledge.

Festivals came and grew.

Someone we know pushed for better quality versions of the great old
recordings and that has been going in the right direction.

A lot in a short time, relatively-speaking.

>>From the death of Di Sarli in '59 to Tango Argentino, the story was

basically Copes, Piazzolla (always the infidel), Pugliese. And Tango por
export. 1, 2, 3, 4.

5, 6, 7, 8.

Well - everything those greats did tirelessly for decades - and everything
tango produced before that for decades - is now delicious fruit produced
hanging heavily on the vine.

As in every facet of our lives, the pace of change now is disruptive and

Calling for calm. Like when we dance.

Change is life - and tango is the dance which incorporated life and
change better than any other.

If things change, tango isn't going to die. It's success was
pre-programmed into it.

Just remember the narrow-minded people who were incensed when that
"stupid" bandoneon player started hanging around trying to play tango like
he belonged.
