As you probably know we have a very active YouTube Channel where we showcase all of the best performances happening in Buenos Aires. The problem is that there are so many performances happening every night in Buenos Aires we can’t keep up.
We have 100’s of videos in our archives of amazing up and coming dancers and we can’t remember all of their names! This is why we need your help. Each week we will be adding new videos to our “Help Us Name These Dancers” playlist. If you know who they are just leave a comment and we will take it from there.
Here are a few videos to get you started:
Help us give these dancers the recognition that they deserve!
Since QueSigaLaMilonga.com started we have recorded thousands of tango performances in Buenos Aires and in cities across Argentina. We have so many videos in our archive that we haven’t even made all of them public!
We are lucky to live in Buenos Aires where on any given night you can see amazing dancers performing for just the cost of the milonga entrada. Some nights you witness tango magic happening right before your very eyes.
We have compiled a playlist of our Top 10 most popular videos (based on lifetime views). Let us know in the comments which one is your favorite or if you have a favorite performance that didn’t make the list.

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.
Omar Viola whose infamous expression “Que siga la milonga!” was the inspiration for our website of the same name. He has been organizing “Milonga Parakultural” along with Horacio Gabin since 1986. Milonga Parakultural has grown over the years is now held at Salon Canning and has become one of Buenos Aires most popular milongas. He is a respected figure in the tango world and helped launched careers of many tango dancers.and musicians.
La Viruta Tango located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is the infamous destination for tangueros of all ages, all levels, from all over the world. This mysterious, noisy place with dimmed lights is just not the same when Juan is not around. He is the man to know if you need a table, want your hot medialunas before they sell out, or need to order an extra bottle of champagne at 5:30 in the morning…. He juggles half of the tables at “La Viru” and hundreds of demanding tangueros every night. And he makes us smile in his not-so-smiley way. Te queremos mucho, Juan! ~ the QSLM team
QueSigaLaMilonga.com is designed to be a peer review site. There are a lot of places where you can get information about what milongas are happening on which nights… but until now there hasn’t ever been ONE place to get MULTIPLE unbiased reviews of the milongas happening in Buenos Aires RIGHT NOW. We want QueSigaLaMilonga.com to be that place.
The world of tango changes rapidly, your favorite milonga from your first trip to Buenos Aires, may not even be there when you make it back. The practica that everyone went to when your friend was in Bs.As in the fall may have changed location, name, time, day of the week or popularity by the time you arrive in the spring. We know that dancers arrive to Buenos Aires with binders full of notes that they have collected from friends, blogs and teachers. WE DID TOO. All in an effort to maximize their time and squeeze every last drop out of their Buenos Aires experience. We believe QueSigaLaMilonga.com can help.
But for this to work, we need everyone to to join in on the fun. So take some time to review your favorite milonga or the milonga you liked the least (someone will thank you) In fact the more reviews you write the better the site becomes. It doesn’t need to be fancy we just want to know your thoughts.
