Travelling Milongas - Uruguay
5 October 2015/ CRESPIAL

On Saturday, 10 October, at 11:30 a.m., four busloads of milongueros will leave from the classic Street Milonga, located in Líber Seregni Square, and head for the Hall of the Lost Steps at the Legislative Palace in Montevideo (Uruguay).

Each milonga will last 45 minutes, and then the buses will drive them elsewhere, taking the tango to different places so that the people of Montevideo can get to see a milonga along their heritage tours.

Travelling Milongas is a project that Street Milonga cultural groups and Yuyo Brujo have been carrying out with the Ministry of Education and Culture of Uruguay since 2013. Street Milonga was founded during the summer of 2010, when a group of milongueros invited people to dance in Líber Seregni Square.

There they built a platform on their own where people could dance, and from October to May, when the weather is good, they hold a dance every Wednesday, which is attended by a growing number of fans, both milongueros and neighbours. Participation in this milonga is open and free of charge.
