Why musicality? how?

It is wrong to think that musicality is only an innate virtue of the artist. In reality, musicality can be acquired through understanding and work.

We can be musical in different ways. At first, the simplest connection seems to be rhythmic and melodic, but digging a little deeper we will find counterpoint, recognition of the different instruments and sections of the orchestra. In this way we will be able to change reference according to the different moments of the song.

By understanding the different aspects of music, we will master the tools necessary to develop a personal and elaborate interpretation.

Musicality is the ability to understand the musical language, which allows you to move through that language, adopt it and give it a personal aspect.

 

With the experience and trajectory of Camilo Córdoba as a professional musician and amateur dancer, we offer you to discover and/or rediscover the musical language of traditional danceable tango and its musicality.
