Greetings my fellow tango addicts. I'm going on another small tour as shown on the picture above. Hope to see some of you on the dance floor!
Before discussing this weeks tanda, let me say a few words about the great Trasnochando festival that we had here in Berlin the last weekend. It was the first edition of the festival and was organized by Frank Seifart, James Bates and Monica Suteau, who is the fairly recent addition to the killer team whos influence has done wonders for the Berlin scene. The sold out festival had a nice venue with character and great music from start to finish. I strongly recommend bookmarking this festival for next year and to get your tickets early!

1. José Sala - "Recuerdo" 1953
2. José Sala - "Sábado inglés" 1953
3. José Sala - "Lágrimas" 1954
4. José Sala - "Nueve de julio" 1953
This week I'd like to introduce the pianist/director and the orchestra of José Sala from Rosario, Argentina.
"Sala recorded between 1953 and 1973 on Columbia (1953-1954), TK (1955-1958) and Europhone (1972-1973). Throughout his career he recorded over 400 numbers. We pay fair homage to a musician who, without exaggeration, meant the symbol of the best tango in Rosario at the time of its highest splendor."
