This guy Sergio can write!!!!? Do I hear some applause?

"The static postcard of the milongas today, with its colorful mixture of "hip youngsters" and old time historical habitues
united in the "ritual" of the dance, is not more than that: a flat image that rarely reveals something more than a repertoire of archetypes. Behind that frozen scene, nevertheless, an unsuspected and burning world exists where the old can be new, the novelty can be obsolete, a simple thing can be difficult, and the excessive is insufficient. And in that, on the other hand, all these values are in permanent change.

Dear Mario et al,
As Sergio wrote, this is an article from the Clarin newspaper. It was
written by one of their regular tango reporters Irene Amuchastegui and
Laura Falcoff.
The translation (by Sergio??) is terrific too.

Yes as Barbara says and I mentioned at the beginning of the note, this is an article that appeared in the Clarin Newspaper
on Sunday, August 8, 1999.

It is an article that I kept in my files ever since and I thought that it could be interesting for the group with respect to the subject of Tango Styles.



I do not write as well as that and certainly not even as well as Barbara does. English is not my native language.


Best regards, Sergio
