Mundial 2016 ended on Aug. 31 with a fanfare. It was a two-week-long event chock-full of concerts, homenajes, stage shows, dance lessons, and, of course, the tango championship. On Day Two of the event, we learned of the passing of Maestro Horcaio Salgan at the age of 100.
Our coverage of the event from Los Angeles was challenging, to say the least, but thanks to the US Championship organizer Andrea Monti and the lovely Natalia Hills, we were able to put together a meaningful episode.
We will get to know the newly crowned champions and their passion for and dedication to tango.
