Here is a picture of Jorge Muscia who painted our sign for the naming of our Tango Dance (Milonga)
Friday night saw the naming of the Cockermouth Tango Group’s social dance (milonga in tango parlance) with the unveiling of a new milonga title banner by tango teachers Liliana Tolomei (Buenos Aires) and Santiago Leon (Barcelona). The artwork was commissioned on a recent visit to Buenos Aires by group organisers Phil Edgar and Maggi Toner-Edgar from Buenos Aires artist Jorge Muscia (www.muscia.com). The artwork includes the Argentine national flower, the ceibo, which is the signifier of the phoenix the symbol of regeneration which, of course, has particular significance to Cockermouth.
The new title of the milonga is ‘Entre Rios’ which is a state in Argentina as well as one of the main thoroughfares of Buenos Aires, Entre Rios means ‘between the rivers’ which makes it directly relevant to Cockermouth.
