DT – 005 – Tango on Florida Street

They are in the Southern Hemisphere, so it is their winter.
But it rarely freezes or snows in Buenos Aires. The climate is similar to the Carolinas.

Calle Florida [Florida Street] is a pedestrian mall in downtown Buenos Aires.

It has been closed to traffic for about 60 years. Musicians and Tango Dancers perform there regularly for tips. The Palestinians, if they were brought to South America, would quickly assimilate over time. There is nothing like this in Araby. They would not know how to deal with it; and their façade of pious Arabic Islamism would eventually crumble.

DT – 004 – Amazing Duo in Buenos Aires

Nothing Arab-Latin here, just my favorite tango – Libertango.

Performed in Buenos Aires’ pedestrian mall, Calle Florida

The poster says he taped the video in February, 2013, though he did not post it until Jun 12, 2013.

Libertango was written by Astor Piazzola, an Argentine composer. He published it in Milan in 1974, and revolutionized Tango.

Astor Piazolla blended classic music, jazz, and tango.

This video below is what Libertango sounds like when it is given the full treatment that Piazolla intended.

It is considered a classical masterpiece; but I thought that duo in the first video did good job of it in Buenos Aires.

Just a break from the politics. Enjoy!

PS: Islamic Sharia cannot compete with this.
I could not avoid politics altogether.
