We would like to thank Nancy & Chris for participating in this video, Oliver for the beautiful voice over,TriMet for allowing us to use them, and Alex Krebs for letting us use his beautiful song Ella Es Asi feat. Enrique El Peru Chavez by The Alex Krebs Tango Sextet. Lastly, we would like to extend our appreciation to Bassel Hamieh for producing all of our videos. We can't wait to show you the rest!

The narrator says "We are a city that recognizes your individuality and inspires what is already in your heart." Obviously referring to the city of Portland.

I'll extrapolate that over to tango, and re-word it.

"What's in your heart?" Obvious/common words, not-so-common wording. Loaded with meaning.

In a different time and place and context, Jypsy JedEye said "tango is a wonderful forum to explore and cultivate mutual respect, freedom, communication, pleasure, compassion, forgiveness, grace, grace, generosity, empathy, subtlety, gentleness, and passion".


What's in your heart?
