Join us for a very special Milonga Qilombo this month. The night starts at 8 pm with a 30-minute concert by violinist Andrew Yang, who uses an electric violin to create looping, musical soundscapes, with influences from the American folk tradition and minimal music. Later in the night, Andrew will be playing live cortinas (the music in between sets of tango). We continue with an all-levels tango class (beginners welcome!) at 8:30 pm (taught by Andres & Meredith), and then from 9:30 pm to 2 am, we’ll enjoy music by phenomenal DJ Manuk Colakyan. Andres & Meredith will perform around 11:30 pm.
