Catalogue


Pepito Avellaneda - Así se baila milonga Vol.1: Testimonios

Reprinted on DVD after being unobtainabale for many years, milonga legend Pepito Avellaneda shows his moves across three DVDs. Volume 1 is a documentary, a tribute to Pepito. It contains interviews and lots of rare archive footage. Especially exciting is Pepito's first visit to Amsterdam in 1990, at a time when tango was little known in Europe. His joy and excitment at bringing tango to Europe is palpable; the atmosphere in the teaching studio is electric, and he dances his socks off!

The demos will have you reaching for the slow motion button many times, as Pepito dances many double time figures in milonga. Don't worry: many - but not all - of these figures are explained across the next two DVDs.

This DVD is a tribute to Pepito Avellaneda. An attempt to reconstruct part of his history, and a homage, with tributes from the dancers and milongueros who knew him.
The material was donated by collectors and friends. In some cases the technical quality is not the best. Nevertheless, the emotional charge that the images hold results in a priceless treasure, an encounter with an artist who was and will always be a legend.

Carlos Gavito with Marcela Durán - Un Tal Gavito - 3 Volumes

Una forma diferente de bailar tango. Carlos Gavito y Marcela Duran nos llevan a su particular mundo, envolviéndonos con su abrazo, sugiriéndonos con sus miradas, diciéndonos con sus pies que el tango es un romance de tres minutos. Ellos nos demuestran que la técnica y la emoción también se unen, que la intención es el sentido y no los pasos… y que bailar es igual que amar.
Un tal Gavito" (A certain Gavito): a different way of dancing tango. Carlos Gavito and Marcela Durán will take us to their particular world, surrounding us in their embrace, suggesting with their looks, telling us with their feet that tango is a three minute romance. They will show us that technique and emotion also are united, that the intention is feeling and not steps... that dancing is the same as loving.
