A spot of culture, Med–food and a tango embrace
The Maltese Tango Community has come together to present to you a beautiful tango weekend where friendships will blossom and tango danced.
Isla del Tango is happy to warmly welcome local and international tango dancers to an event where people of similar minds come together to enjoy each other’s company and what they love most.
On Thursday 29th of September evening we will be heading south of the island. We can tour the famous historical three-cities (meet us at 6.30pm near Freedom Statue – Il-Monument tal-Helsien), have a spot of Maltese food (8pm) and tango at IL-FORN (9pm until midnight). This atmospheric venue was an old bakery turned into an art gallery & wine bar serving light food. DJ for the night is Nathalie Mifsud.
On the evening of Friday 30th of September we are heading to Palm Court, Phoenicia Hotel, Floriana. Milonga from 8.30pm until midnight. DJ for the night is Claudia Borg.
On the evening of Saturday 1st of October we will be dancing in the heart of Valletta for the annual Notte Bianca which is a spectacular, night-long celebration of culture and the arts in Malta’s capital. Cultural venues, state palaces and museums open their doors almost all night, with many playing host to visual art exhibitions, dance and theatre performances. Streets and squares become venues for open-air concerts, while many cafes and restaurants extend their hours and also run pavement stalls. All art and musical forms are represented from classical to pop and contemporary. The event sees Valletta become an ‘open city’ of culture. The event sees Valletta become an ‘open city’ of culture.
