TangOnline: "What about Tango Poetry?"
A brief, creative approach of the main subjects of tango lyrics.
with Ioanna Papachristou
Wouldn’t you love to know what tango lyrics are really about?
Are you interested in zooming in to the poetry of tango, but have no time/intention to learn any Spanish?
We have a proposal for you!
We strongly believe it is possible to create stronger bonds with tango songs when we know what they talk about. The “heart” beating inside a tango piece can get us to fall even more in love with our favorite melodies, or notice new ones that represent something special for us!
This is why we feel the need to approach the lyrics, even through translation, and get an idea of the stories told inside.
We propose a one-month class of 4 online meetings, on all Tuesdays of July.
No experience in Spanish language is required. We will read and discuss on translated pieces. The class is IN ENGLISH.
Through this short but intense study of tango lyrics, you will manage to realize the sensitive spirit, the poetic inventiveness and the creativity of the big tango writers. Moreover, you will get a clear picture of the society –and its evolution- back at the time of tango creations.
Let’s observe, feel and talk in the depths of tango…!
The course is every Tuesday at 21:00
