'Milonga' is the Brazilian Portuguese word for 'angry or repetitive words; witchcraft.' The word is used to describe a type of Argentine Tango and the place where it is danced. Ashkenaz will be hosting our first Milonga, and it will include and all-level Tango dance lesson at 8 pm taught by Pablo y Ludmila. This will be followed at 9 pm by a Milonga with traditional Tango music performed by Pablo y Ludmila and DJ (TBA). At 10:30 pm there will be an intermission with dance performance by Pablo y Ludmila.
Pablo and Ludmila are both professional musicians and tango dancers. They studied music at the University of Music and Perfoming Arts (MDW) in Vienna, Austria and improved as tango dancers in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is important to emphasize that Pablo & Ludmila are the first and only couple in the entire world that dances tango and also plays music as a Tangoduo (Piano & C-violin).
In October 2013, Pablo & Ludmila won the 1st prize and the Viewers´ Choice award at the International Open Tango Salon Championship in Budapest, Hungary. They have also performed and taught tango in Chile, Argentina, Canada, USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Montenegro, Czech Rep. and Hungary.
