PREMIOSTANGO

THE BIRTH

While having dinner at her home, Lola Diaz (Tangopal & CITA co-director) had a striking idea: a ceremony where the work, effort and dedication in tango could be rewarded by peers. As a result, a few days later the awards PremiosTango were born. Certainly, she needed to spread the word, so after two months of hard work, more than a hundred invitees from almost every branch in tango’s creative industry heard a proposal to be part of the board of jurors. Articles of incorporation were soon presented and everybody was ready to go.
The first edition of Premios Tango was held on March, 10th 2018 in Buenos Aires.
The ceremony took part during a private dinner held at the Abasto Hotel. Followed by an After Party Milonga open to the public with the great music of Los Reyes del Tango.

ABOUT

We do not think of the awards as a competition. And, above all, they are no joke.
No one has to register to participate; we are all participating while we are working in tango.
PremiosTango do not want to reward a stranger, neither somebody's overall life experience or choose the best dancer in history. We intend to recognize the merit during the period of one year.
Therefore, the awards shall be given annually to honor outstanding artistic achievements and other merits in the world of tango. To be conferred only at an annual PremiosTango ceremony.

A WORD FROM LOLA

“Maybe we don’t know each other much, but surely you know my husband. For a long time, in different ways, he, Fabián Salas, tried to give recognition and pay homage to many colleagues. I've always found these acts something wonderful and one day I thought, why not do the same formally? And just like that, the Premios Tango were born.”

We're taking a short pause. We'll be back soon! :)
