Our Tango social dance otherwise known as a Milonga has now officially got a name (see the images below), a fantastic sign painted by an artist in Buenos Aires called Jorge Muscia. See his site at www.muscia.com
He has painted a pheonix on the ‘S’, which was his idea but is totally relevant to the regeneration and renewal of growth and energy in Cockermouth. It also features the ciebo national flower of Argentinia and the flag- blue and white stripes but with a pheonix in the centre instead of a gold sun. But it has really brought some sunshine into our freezing cold December dance nights, more powerfully than any Christmas decoration could ever have done and we get to show it every month like a mini exhibition in a Milonga.
