Join us to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the monthly CMC Mission Milonga with a very special event! For the first time ever in the San Francisco Bay Area, guitarists Hernán Reinaudo (Buenos Aires) and Scott O’Day (Oakland) will host a live Peña. Tango singers throughout the Bay Area have been invited to take part in the first of ongoing public re-creations of the classic peñas of Spain and South America.
Peña is a meeting place of a group of musicians. In Buenos Aires, it is commonly associated with singers and guitarists coming together to share in a particular form of tango called tango canción, or tango song. Peñas are an exposition of tango music rarely heard at the milonga (Argentine Tango social dance gathering), but just as vital to its history. This evening will be dedicated to Roberto Traina (1931-2017), beloved Tango singer in the SF Bay Area.
- 9PM-12AM Milonga with DJ Asvin and live music Peña with guests Hernán Reinaudo and Scott O’Day, guitars; and many singers!
