Milonga Pasional in Cambridge
adj. Pasional [pasjo'nal]:
[Spanish] Of, relating to, or filled with passion - passional
After many years of dancing in London and Cambridge, and a few years of teaching in Cambridge, Flo and Costa decided to establish a milonga with the aim to provide the best possible music for dancing and also bring the soul of Argentine Tango to Cambridge: the Argentine Culture.
Tango is a personal issue for most dancers, but is also a world cultural heritage based on the Argentine and Uruguayan culture of South America, with very strong African and southern European influences. In Pasional we aim to bring this culture into a milonga environment, a southern touch in the northern part of Europe, where we live and dance.
Pasional is a Milonga in Cambridge, UK. It is not, however, just another milonga: Pasional was the first milonga in the world that had a resident DJ (Osvaldo Miranda) DJ-ing and streaming directly from Buenos Aires for an audience 7000 miles away!
On some of the evenings, we have also presented Voz de Tango, a cultural experiment aiming to bridge Europe with Argentina and allow us all to look deeper into the culture behind Tango as we love it.
Pasional is a warm and welcoming milonga with good music, organised by people who love to dance for like-minded people.
Next Pasional: Saturday 19th January
Pasional runs on the 1st and 3rd Saturday when there are 4 Saturdays in a month (most months) OR on the 2nd and 4th Saturday when there are 5 Saturdays in a month (it happens 4 times a year)
