0:40 – A gancho of the man while the woman does a piernazo, followed by another gancho while the woman does a boleo.

0:51 – A nice sequence with soltada, finishing with a back sacada from Guillermo.

1:00 – Just to emphasize Marina’s beautiful embelishments…

1:49 – Guillermo leads a gancho of the woman and then does a gancho himself, while the woman is doing a boleo. He really likes this combination! Me too… 🙂

2:03 – Guillermo does a nice sequence of quick steps following the music.

2:15 – Marina does beautiful small steps around Guillermo in synch with the music.

2:25 – Nice and unusual sequence of back crosses followed by front steps by Marina.


I liked very much the interpretation of this piece in terms of musicality. I found the leader to be very creative and Marina shows great ease and elegance while she punctuates her performance with beautiful embelishments.

1:00 – Great phrasing, with syncopated movements following the bandoneon. And I just love the gancho Guillermo does while the woman is doing a high boleo. Just in time with the music!

1:12 – Marina “falls” with such grace, emphasizing the moment, followed by strong, yet fluid, gancho (it even seems to take a little exclamation yell from a lady in the audience :)). Love the dress, by the way…

1:48 – Again, great sequence in perfect synch with the music, starting with a back sacada of the woman to the man, sacadas, ganchos and boleos marking the beat and then a beautiful spin of Marina in soltada, finishing with a front boleo before recovering the embrace.

2:37 – Marina’s grace oozes through this slow and romantic part of the music, drawing her steps and embelishments in a very seductive way.

2:54 – Another syncopated sequence that goes very well with the music. It adds a nice flavour to the interpretation!

I just love The Tallest Man On Earth. Though this is not one of his best trakcs, it’s just great seeing someone dancing to it. Not an easy track to dance to, but they managed pull it off great.

Has I’ve said before, I love Gianpiero’s fluid moves… I particularly enjoyed the volcadas with fake arrastadas of the woman to the man at about 3:58 of the video. It embodies such a connection and control of movements. Just great!

I just love the way Gianpiero dances. He´s allways so fluid, so organic.

For this music, which is so soft and mellow, I would have expected a performance more minimalistic and intimate, but it is indeed a beautiful performance and great interpretation.
