BANNED tango commercial

This commercial was filmed in 1999 somewhere in Zabbar.  Exact location not known but we know that it had a lovely floor.  The dancers are Charlotte Stuart who is the co-founder of Isla del Tango and Steve Abela, a well known Flamenco Dancer.  Steve had taken some lessons during Maestro Eric Jørissen’s early days workshops in Malta. Charlotte now Vural still dances tango.

This was the first ever tango video locally produced.  The advert shows a couple dancing tango, the tanguera was barefoot and after a couple of moves, the tanguero pushed her to the floor until she wore a pair to Gallarija Darmanin shoes.  This advert was banned by the Broadcasting Authority and it claimed it was in bad taste.

Thanks to Ray Debono for bringing to light and to Charlotte for info.
