This week's traditional tanda is a rhythmic set of tangos by Enrique Rodríguez with Roberto Flores singing. Last week I featured a set of Vals and a set of Fox Trot-Milongas by Rodriguez, so I figured we would go one more and feature some of his rhythmic tangos. Also, I played this tanda this weekend at Milonga Plaka and it was a success.
This week's traditional tanda is a fun set of vals by Enrique Rodríguez and Angel Condercuri. This set is always a crowd pleaser. It is just incredibly happy and fun. I usually play 3 vals, so I play the first two and then pick between the last two depending on my mood.
Tengo Mil Novias (I Have a Thousand Girlfriends/Brides) is about a guy that can't settle down because he loves all the women, blondes, brunettes, etc. Isabelita is about a beautiful porteña. "Estas Chicas se quieren Casar" translates to "all these girls want to get married." Fru-Fru is actually a classic French Chanson titled Frou-Frou and is, if I am understanding the translation correctly, about how women in skirts are much better than women wearing pants. Frou-Frou is the sound that a woman's skirt makes when it rustles.
