Tonight on the show we were joined by pianist Andrew Oliver from Portland Oregon.
Andrew specializes in Tango, Early Jazz, and Ragtime. We chatted about his time living and playing in London and Europe. The community in Portland as well as how he came to playing tango music after many years playing Jazz.

Jesica Cutler and John Miller from Denver Colorado also joined us. We have known them for several years and they are a really creative and fun couple. Teachers, dancers, performers, and Dj's they have helped contribute to the growth of the Denver community for many years. 
It was a really fun conversation with lots of interesting insights. They are definitely kindred spirits.

Stine is a bandoneonista from Denmark who has been living and playing in Buenos Aires for over 10 years.
She shared her wonderful music and played a very inspiring live piece for us as well.

Silvia Ceriani also called in from Buenos Aires. Dancer, teacher, DJ, and historian she shared a lot of knowledge about a period of time she refers to as, "when tango went into a cave."
We listened to music from lesser known but amazing orchestra's from the 50's and 60's and learned about them and the time period when they were playing. She also told us about what was happening in the dance community as well as in the music community during that time.

It was a very fun and interesting show!!

Tonight on the show Travis Widrick joined us. We caught up and chatted about his summer rebuilding his family farm, learning to be resourceful, and, of course, his tango journey. We also discussed the bridges that tango creates for us into other communities we may otherwise not be able to access.
It was a very fun and interesting conversation as usual.

Maria Elena Ybarra joined us as well and we discussed the roles in tango, the biases in tango, and how we can help overcome these prejudices by first acknowledging that they exist.
We covered so many interesting topics and I learned a lot about how we can help to foster a more welcoming community.
