Since May 2020 the Magic Roundabout Milongas have been online to cater for the need for good traditional tango music and social interaction. We named it The Magic Roundabout Sunday Social. Three hours of tangos with tandas in threes and the opportunity to request your favourite song too. Catch up with your friends via the chat function of zoom.
The Magic Roundabout Sunday Social (virtual tango event) runs roughly from now on [October 2021] once a month for people who like traditional tango music.
The Magic Roundabout Milongas
If you enjoy listening and dancing to music from the Golden Age of Tango in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, then you will like The Magic Roundabout Milongas. We believe that the details make a difference to your (dance) experience. In the virtual world we invite you to our Zoom meeting where you can see the other participants, interact with them visually or via the chat function and of course you are connected to our music stream.
Join alone, with your partner or even organise your own little practica/milonga to our music. The only limit is the number of devices allowed. At the moment we are having the limit set to 100 but if the interest is there we will increase the number again. Best to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment later.
