PARLOR TANGO is a trio dedicated to Argentine tango music composed, mostly, between 1910 and 1950. Its repertoire of tangos, waltzes and milongas evokes the flavor of black-and-white movies and steamy dance halls.
In Paris, the native city of Odile Lavault, tango has been very important since 1912. Traveling Argentine musicians inspired local bands. It became common for French accordion players to play bandoneon as well. Lavault is continuing this tradition
Pianist Marco Casasola brings his youthful energy to assure the rhythmic foundation of the trio. Casasola grew up surrounded by tango music and figured out rapidly how to mix his passion for jazz with his relatives’ favorite tangos.
PARLOR TANGO has performed for ODC Theater, the Navarete/ Kajiyama+ Dance Company, and tango dancers all over Northern California. PARLOR TANGO has one CD “Live at Anna’s”.

Tonight Odile and Marco will perform as a bandoneon/piano duo.

Tango Revolution is a weekly neighborhood educational project to offer anyone the opportunity to learn and experience the social aspect of Argentine Tango dance, music and history. By holding the event in an accessible café on a Sunday afternoon we encourage the spontaneous inclusion of music and dance in our everyday life as a communal experience.

Tango Revolution is a program of Intimate Embrace Tango, which envisions Argentine Tango as a relational matrix of connection to ourselves, each other and the world. We organize classes, workshops, cultural, awareness-and fundraising events around social issues of our time.

We hope that Tango Revolution is a fertile ground for learning about Argentine Tango, a dance and music of immigrants, which continues to cross the boundaries of race, culture, language and social status. Where both beginning and accomplished dancers and musicians can share the floor without obvious hierarchy. Where all gender pairings are encouraged and anyone may ask anyone to dance.

We offer the beautiful connection between human beings in the Tango Embrace as a common ground and antidote against the isolation, separation and fearful existence we are led to believe is necessary. What better way to come home to ourselves and to connect with each other across our differences than the non-verbal power of a musical and dance embrace, listening and moving together as one?

Come watch, listen or join in the dance! All levels and ages are welcome. No partner or dance experience necessary
