Event Details

Tango in Kilifi on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya!

KilifiLonga 2017, from Wednesday 31 May to Sunday 4 June 2017 — 4 tango nights in the coastal town and creek of Kilifi in Kenya, hosted by Distant Relatives - Kilifi's eco - lodge & backpackers! Dance under the big sky of Africa, along the Indian Ocean, basked in a warm see breeze, to the sound of great traditional tango music, a Milonga every evening caressed by the ocean breeze, in Baires style, with a different DJ each night.

Take advantage of daily workshops with world-class passionate tango maestros Miriam Orcutt & Dante Culcuy, finally returning to Kenya after their first visit in 2012! Miriam y Dante are currently the directors of the biggest tango school in the UK, finalists in the World Tango Championships in Buenos Aires in the category of Tango Salon (de pista) just in 2015!

Friday evening will also feature Tango and Latino music duo Raices in concert, playing live Tango for us to dance to, as well as live demos by the maestros Miriam Orcutt & Dante Culcuy!

Mornings, take a centering Pilates session with Jessica Norton-Griffiths or treat yourself for a blast of fun of rhythmic Hula Hooping with Mwanase!

Come meet the enthusiastic and growing tango community in Nairobi and other places in East and Central Africa.

All Workshops and Milongas will be facilitated by Patamango's own Mario (Nairobi, Kenya), guilty of introducing and nourishing Tango in Kenya.

KilifiLonga 2017 is being organized con mucho gusto by The Patamango Association, a non-profit association of passionate volunteers with the mission of developing Argentine Tango culture in Kenya, in collaboration with Distant Relatives - Kilifi's eco - lodge & backpackers.
