Fuegos artificiales | Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

Eduardo Arolas

Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)

In 1912 Roberto Firpo called Arolas and Roccatagliatta to play with him at the famous cabaret Armenonville. Later, Arolas distanced himself from Firpo and had a sign at his presentations that clarified “We don’t play Firpo’s compositions”.

But “Fuegos artificiales” became a great outcome from this encounter.

Firpo still went on to record many of Arolas’ tangos.

Let’s listen to the magnificent rendition of “Fuegos artificiales” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica, 1945.

Pianist, leader, composer and lyricist
(31 May 1896 – 10 December 1953)

He was an authentic innovator of Tango, either as player or as composer. As a pianist, he was the first to fill in the bass line with embellishments when the melody rests -a procedure that later would be systematized by Francisco De Caroa, besides his subtlety in the interpretation.

Milongueando with Mimi. Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires. Classes. Dance.

Milongueando in Lafayette. Fresedo/Ray tanda.

When I receive a new student in my class I know that he or she wants to dance.

But teaching them to dance involves not only showing the moves, but also giving the student a sense of placement, making him or her aware that you cannot just do any move at any time.
I must give the new students a sense of Tango as a whole, make them understand that they are learning a culture.
Tango is what happens in the milonga. And when I say milonga, my image is that of the very best of the most authentic milongas in Buenos Aires.
This is what guides my instruction, and that is why, along with others who are after the same goal, we created the Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.

Lafayette classes and milonga are the most similar to a Buenos Aires neighborhood class and milonga. The friendly and committed to learn crowd of regulars makes the experience of this class and milonga to feel very welcoming and rewarding.

Dancing with Miranda at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

Walking

Walking, in Tango, is more than basic: it is what we are.

For some time now we have stopped walking, instead sitting all day long in front of screens, steering wheels, and other people.

That’s why we feel so at home dancing Tango, in good company, creating something with our body that is real and objective, something that ceases to exist immediately after dancing, leaving us in a state of relaxed pleasure and untranslatable wisdom.

Learn to dance Argentine Tango and make your life a work of art.
