Episode 73 of Joe’s Tango Podcast is now online!
My guest today has spent her life immersed in art. While living in New York City, she has worked as an interior designer, writer, dancer, performance artist, and rock musician.
In 1999, she and her husband, Alberto Paz, moved to New Orleans, where she helped establish the Argentine Tango scene there. In 2002 they created the New Orleans Tango Festival. In 2009, they won the 3rd annual U.S.A. Salon Style Tango Championship. They also co-authored the book Gotta Tango, and both have been influential in the development of salon Tango in the US. Sadly, Alberto passed away in 2014, but she continues contributing to the tango community in New Orleans, hosting classes and milongas, as well as supporting other local tango events.
