The next few days the town goes Tango mad, with over 400 participants in a 2 day frenzy of passionate foot stomping. Tonight, Friday 18th, the weekend starts at 19:30 at the Casa Cultura, with Instantes de Vida, which promises theatre, dance, music, songs and poetry, along with the most famous tangos, vibrant melodies and the occasional “world-famous surprise”.
This is followed with a spectacular on Saturday night, La Noche Que Me Quieras, showcasing several well known names in the tango world and honouring Carlos Gardel. This show premiered in Valencia and it is a great coup for Almunecar for it be performed here.
The two main concerts are supported by Milonga dancing in Parque de Majuelo. This is a form of Tango which originated around the River Plata in Argentina & Uruguay and was at its height in the 1870s.
Hotel Almunecar Playa is also hosting a series of exhibitions and workshops over the weekend, with over 60 registered dance partners.
Tickets are available at the Casa de Cultura, or at Viajes Ecuador as well as on-line at bravoentradas.com
