Hello Friends!

Episode 87 of Joe's Tango Podcast is now online!
Listen here

My guest today is a bandoneon player, pianist, and hard-core tango scholar. She's really enthusiastic about promoting contemporary tango music, and encourages us to explore that rich and largely-untapped world.

At the time of this recording, my guest is very close to finishing her Masters Degree in Ethnomusicology at the University of Maryland. In the DC area, she's been part of the tango group Da Capo Tango, where she is one of two bandoneon players. She has traveled extensively, and studied and played with some of the top bandoneon players today.

Let's meet Heyni Solera...

LET THE MUSIC TAKE YOU

When we feel like we're actually dancing, we realize that we've let go of anxiety and the mental struggle of remembering countless technique points. That feeling of smooth movement, even if it's fleeting at first, gives us a sense that we can indeed become tango dancers after all.

The sensation is like riding a bike for the first time, when the person teaching us lets go of the seat and leaves us to balance on our own. On the dance floor, we capture that feeling when we start making a better effort to move with the music.

We may still stumble every now and then as our muscle memory takes shape, but the key to our next tango breakthrough is closely tied to the music. So let's pay closer attention to it, trust it, and not be afraid to let it take us.
