DJ Belinda/VJ Andreas – Live Virtual Neo Tango Set incl Zouk Tango Hour
April 27 @ 5:30 am - 9:00 am AEST
This Sunday I will be starting my live virtual DJ set with an hour of music which tango and zouk can be danced to. Zouk shares a close embrace and chest lead with tango, although like with neo tango there is interchanging between close and open embrace. Tango is a very introverted dance, zouk is very hypnotic and the music mesmerising, it’s almost like sleep dancing 😉. Zouk has a constant beat that is danced on but like tango advanced dancers can also dance on the melody. Many pop & r&b songs can be danced by both tango and zouk dancers and they will make up a large proportion of my playlist during this hour. All dances evolve by incorporating (I don’t want to say steal 😉) moves from other dance styles and zouk has recently introduced colgadas. We have quite a few dancers in Melbourne who dance both styles and in 2017 in Berlin ‘Modern Zouk’ have coined the term Zango which is a fusion of both styles. Check out this video to see an example of zouk tango fusion aka Zango https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5x4utE3RCOY
On Sunday I will again be joined by neo tango VJ maestro Andreas Lange from Germany whose visual images synchronising with the music are not to be missed. He doesn’t know what songs are being played until he hears them himself on the spot and reacts instinctively. I also try and pick songs I think will be of interest to him as a VJ to accentuate.
