Monday was the first night of the Tango Secrets Festival. This year the festival with a packed house at Milonga Parakultural in Salon Canning and amazing performances by Romina Levin & Julio Altez and Fernando Carrasco & Jimena Hoeffner.
Noticeably Fernando and Jimena’s performance was very different from what you would have seen if you had been in Buenos Aires this time last year.
It will be interesting to see how their style continues to develop.
