Re: “Speaking Tango with Trio Garufa

I must agree with Don Guillermo above. I've been involved in Tango for the last seven years, and I don't see the local Tango scene as wilting at all. On the contrary, we are attracting some of the best performers, teachers, and personalities in the world. At the same time, several of the local instructors, musicians and dancers now have worldwide reputations.
It is true that the options for live tango music are not great, and many (most?) dancers prefer golden age recordings to contemporary music but that is true everywhere in my opinion and has more to do with economics than anything else (long discussion, I won't bore you with it here). I hope that Ms Swan will continue to cover Trio Garufa and the local Tango scene in general - it really is a gem of bay area culture.
