What arrogance! What classy dancing! There are so many Americans who dance tango without understanding the lyrics. I enjoy the process of translating a tango that interests me and have included a few on my blog. I look forward to reading your translations, since there are very few sources for accurate ones. To my knowledge, Mr.
Hello Janis, Thank you for commenting! I am glad you enjoy the site. On the subject of tangos written in Lunfardo: I am actually preparing a page to go up on the title that will address this issue, but thanks for bringing it up :. Lunfardo is a lexicon: that is, a special subset of words—often based on borrowings from Italian, French, and any of the other languages spoken by immigrants—coined by the marginal population of Buenos Aires in the early 20th century to refer to things in their experience.
Lunfardo words, however, conform to the grammatical structure of castellano argentino. Each tango uses Lunfardo words to a greater or lesser degree…now, of course, a large number of Lunfardo words makes the tango almost incomprehensible, even to a native Spanish speaker, often even to one from Argentina. Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.
Yet if I asked you what part of speech outgrabe is, you would be able to tell me that it is a verb in the past tense. Rulo Con Sacada y Castigada. Sacada Con Cambio de Frente.

What a look! What a silhouette! What a bearing! And arrogance! So much style to dance! This is how to dance tango, while I draw the figure eight; for all these intricate moves, I am like a painter. Now some side steps, a pivot, a stop… This is how to dance tango, a tango of my own!
This is how to dance tango, feeling on your face, blood that rises at each beat, while your arm, like a snake, coils itself around the waist that is about to break. This is how to dance tango, breaths mix, eyes close to listen to the violins and the bandoneons wondering why Malena did not sing tonight…. Tango classes Tango holidays Che London!
