Pink milonga by TanguerIN

Another "color milonga" organized by TanguerIN Studio took place on 17th August 2005 in the Sports and Entertainment Club on 3 Kaloyan St. This time the color of the milonga was pink. Pink is considered to be an aristrocratic color in many countries including Argentina, with one of the landmark buildings in Buenos Aires being the Casa Rosada ("The Pink House") which is the seat of the President of the Argentine Republic. As usual, everyone who wore the color of the milonga was entitled to participate in a prize draw. The music for the milonga was selected by TanguerIN's resident DJ Ivo.
