Tango::Milongas in Buenos Aires - Videos

Oleh Kovalchuke in Colorado Springs did a great job of documenting (on video) the various "top" milongas in Buenos Aires. They are great to watch to get a feel for them - if you have never been or are about to go. Here they are....

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Niño Bien ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Salon Canning ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Confiteria Ideal ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : El Beso ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Maipu 444 : Wednesday ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Club Grisel ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : La Viruta ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Cachirulo ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Lo De Celia ::

:: Tango en Mar Del Plata : milonga ::

:: Milongas in Buenos Aires : Plaza Dorrego ::

I would have liked to have seen him do videos of Porteño y Bailarín, La Nacional, and the Buenos Aires Tango Club. I would highly recommend all of those milongas if you are planning a trip to BsAs.

Here is one of Porteño y Bailarín, with Detlef Engel & Melina Sedo [teachers from Germany] doing a milonga demo...I was actually there...sitting right behind the bald guy at the top of the frame (on the right side of the dance floor) get a glimpse of him a couple of times...I was sitting against the Porteño y Bailarín, there are two dance floors...there is one toward the back and around the corner to the left from the dance floor you see in this video...this will at least give you a feel for the room/venue...

Hi Alex,

I do have the video from Porteno y Bailarin milonga. You can find it along with clips from Viejo Correo and Sunderland (by other people) in this playlist:

Cheers, Oleh.

Thanks Oleh!

See you at the Denver Tango Christmas milonga...I guess they are calling it the "Snow Ball" Boulder...
