Some tango quotes in spanish poorly translated to spanish, with grammar mistakes , I am sorry for that. Hope the meaning could survive .


"Songs are born from memories, our own pains and from others; joy that we not lived but someone lived with us; tears that we do not cry but someone cry near us. A song is a piece of life; a suit that is looking for a body to fit altogether well. The more bodies to be for that suit , the more succes will have the song. Because if everybody sing it , is a signal that everybody live it, feel it, suit its well " Enrique Santos Discepolo

" Listen to the different orchestras. You have to begin by loving tango, to let it go into your veins, until it arrives to your heart. And then, to seek for a good teacher. Go to the milongas and dance with different people. Even if you are dating somebody, he has to dance with different women and he has to dance with different man. This way you learn to dance " Maria Nieves.



Warm regards

"I beleve a lot of the time we are looking and wanting to discover
something. Perhaps a moment where the world becomes lucid, the sublime touch
of another that we are not alone, that breakthrough and "AHA" experince.
Perhaps it is that we simply step at the same moment with another human
being or hear the others heart beat.
It is equally true that at times we are looking for the Hey there, wanna see
my etchings"

"Other music exists to heal wounds; but the tango when sung and played
is for the purpose of opening them, for the purpose of sticking your
finger in the wound and to tear them until they bleed."
