DJ Belinda/VJ Andreas – Virtual Set incl Kizomba Tango Half Hour
May 10 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm AEST
This Sunday I will start my set with half an hour of Kizomba music to also dance tango to. Kizomba originates from Angola and is dubbed the African tango. It shares a very close embrace and chest lead with tango, along with displacement of the follower’s foot and is very introspective but in my opinion I find it wwwwaaaaaaayyyyyyyy more sensual and intimate than tango. Tango dancers pick up kizomba very quickly, except for the pelvic gyration which gives kizomba its character ;-).
The most well known song which both dance styles can be danced to is Mil Pasos with the most famous kizomba performance on YouTube being this clip of Felicien and Isabelle dancing it on a street in Paris https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dm_TzKprOls
An example of kizomba/tango fusion (or as some are calling it tangomba or kiztango) is:
I am as always very pleased to have VJ Andreas’s visual dancing accompanying my music :-).
Also on Neotango TV this weekend is DJ Jean-Marc Vandel from Switzerland on Saturday night playing specifically for Australians from 7.30-10.30pm and taking song requests on http://www.virtualdj.com/ask/gihem. https://www.facebook.com/events/254294272385084/
A Mother’s Day special treat on Sunday before my set from 6.30-7.30pm is a replay of The Magic Violin concert with VJ Andreas Lange’s beautiful changing visual background of Rome where the musician originates from. A few of us saw some of the concert the other night and can highly recommend it, very beautiful playing to many songs you will know. If we are lucky hopefully Il Violino Magico will be in the chat with us! https://www.facebook.com/events/163703491734941/
After my set at 10:30pm-1am will be DJ Hubert Lelong from France who trains and assists the DJs on Neotango TV on the technical aspects of broadcasting and also is known to those participating in the chat.
