For those of you who know us and who have danced with us at Milonga Gavito or last year at the first Gavito Tango Festival, our love and passion for tango translates into embracing and welcoming different tango genres, and we are very pleased to present Neotango LA as a part of the Gavito Tango Festival. We will feature 3 nights alternative music milongas, Friday through Sunday. The Neotango LA Marathon portion of the Gavito Tango Festival will take place in the same venue but in a separate ballroom, featuring an excellent lineup of DJs, including Michael McCarrell of Los Angeles, Alison Bradley of Berlin, and Lila Grace of Los Angeles.
Through improvisations, deconstructions of tango and milonga pieces, and the rich tapestry of Latin American music, including its various genres, sound effects, atmospheric elements, and modern influences, Camilo will transport us into the world of spontaneous creation, crafting original music and soundscapes that capture the essence of South America. Dance with us in this innovative tango experimentation from this world-class musician at the living, breathing, creative edge of tango music!

NOCTURNA in the Neotango LA room at the Gavito Tango Festival
Dancing in Darkness
30 minutes that just might change your life
Explore the dark side of tango with us as we turn off the lights and dance to a sensual, intimate set of alternative and classical music, in complete darkness. You will wear a luminescent wrist band, and the ronda will turn into a beautiful field of floating fireflies. We will change partners after every song, magical connections will be made, your senses will expand, and you might just spend the rest of the festival trying to find that mystery tanguero/a with whom you had such a magical connection.
Originating in the blues dance scene in Toulouse, Neotango DJ Nueva Guardia introduced this extraordinary experience to the European neotango community, and Neotango DJ Jean-Marc spread it far and wide, from Berlin to Buenos Aires. As far as we know, Neotango LA at the Gavito Tango Festival will be the first time a Nocturna has been presented at a tango festival in the United States. Don’t miss this very special experience!
Limited to 50 dancers, first-come, first-served. Meet us in the Neotango room Friday and Saturday night at 1am and blow your tango mind. xoxo
