LYRICS: Héctor Pedro Blomber
MUSIC: Enrique Maciel

Abuelita Dominga,
que era muy vieja,
y vivía en el barrio,
de los candombes,
del carnaval de rosas,
no se olvidaba,
al cantar esta copla,
roja de amores.
Rosa morena,
de la escena federal,
yo se que tu alma se quema,
de una pasión que es mortal,
rosa sin penas,
todos la vieron pasar,
y en su garganta morena,
sangraba un rojo collar.
Abuelita Dominga,
siempre lloraba,
al recordar la historia,
de amor y sangre,
y me dió esta guitarra,
para que un día,
la cante como nunca,
la canto nadie.

Tango Shoes

In tango, the relationship between lead and follower, man and woman, is so intense and all consuming, that there is simply no time for small talk. The last man I danced with, I know more intricately in many ways than his lover: I know that he perspires in a tiny spot above his brow; that when the dance slows and our connection is tight, his breathing almost stops; that when my leg sweeps his, he arches his neck imperceptibly upwards; that when another couple got too close he subconsciously enclosed me in a protective embrace; and that his hand rested so delicately on the flesh of my back. Yet all I know about him are his name and his country of origin. Small talk is a luxury not afforded to us tango addicts. - Anastasia Demaggio
