Thank you for coming to Tango de los Muertos!

It's done. Thank you so much for coming to the fifth and final Tango de los Muertos. Each of you brought your energy and zestiness and helped create an amazing event. Thank you for your support this year, and in our four previous years! Thanks also to the talented artists and volunteers who helped us to bring about a vision of tango that is round, colorful and joyous. We loved celebrating with you all!

Do you have a report for us about your TdlM 09 festival experience? Fill out the Feedback Form to share your thoughts! Thanks!

Because we loved the Monster Orchestra so much, we made a recording of their performance at the FINAL milonga of TdlM. If you also loved the orchestra and want to support the creation of live tango music for dancers, please buy a CD! The CDs are $10, and any proceeds will go right back to the musicians. Order it here.

Photos and videos are forthcoming. When we get them, we'll post links to them here. Some photos are already on Facebook...hopefully the photographers have all linked them into the Tango de los Muertos Facebook group.)
